What's your power supply? that would help determine what's best for you :|
Well for one they have more memory for the most part (1gb is not enough for games these days)
and overall they perform much better in games, the 7790 is about as powerful as a gtx 560 from a few years back

For example, 660 vs 7790 this is the performance gap

Are you thinking of going crossfire or SLI sometime though?
Either way now the power supply is out of the way any of those cards should work pretty well for you in games
If you're thinking about BF4 then a 660 or 7870 would be the way to go

Haha I wouldn't recommending crossfire if you don't want to fiddle around with settings to get games to run properly. The 7850 would be a good choice, check this benchmark and decide if the 7870 is worth the extra cash over the 7850
once again if you're thinking of BF4, they recommended a 7870 :p

Get an AMD card if you are not thinking of buying a fantastic quality 3D Asus monitor any time soon. If not, go for GTX
