Radeon HD 7850 or GeForce GTX 660

Ok, so I am about to buy a new graphics card, and I've narrowed it down to these two:

Mostly I'll be using this in Adobe CC programs, and I picked these two out because my research indicates they test well with Open GL, and they have the best specs for under $200.

The big difference that I see is the GTX has a higher Core Clock and a lower Memory Interface, while the Radeon has the opposite: A higher Memory Interface with a lower Core Clock.

I'll mostly be using this at my job where I occasionally have to work with massive, massive rasterized images in Photoshop. On the side I'm dabbling in After Effects and some 3D rendering (Vue Digital Nature, Modo, ZBrush). I'm sure either one of these will be more than I need, but the obsessive freak in me wants to know which will really be the best.

  1. That has got to be the most expensive 7850 around :D The 660 is a better card, but on average it is $50 more expensive than the 7850.
