I really need help! Cant decide, which one is better? Performance and cooling wise? I have an msi gaming motherboard if that helps but i like the asus aswell because its massive and has loads of heat pipes!! Could you maybe tell me the pros and cons of each? My specs are..
Cooler master haf x case
Msi z77a-g45 gaming motherboard
Intel i5 3570k
ocz zt 650 watt power supply
Hyper 212 evo cooler

Thanks in advance guys :)

I currently run the MSI 660 TF and I can say I have not had any troubles running any game on max at 1080p. I think it is a great GPU and Honestly between those 2 choices I would say go with the one that is cheaper. Good luck!

Me too. I have the MSI. Runs everything great and runs very, very cool while doing so, even after hours of gaming. I also like MSI's afterburner software. The first MSI 660 I got died after a month and had to be RMI'd. I have been running the replacement card for about 4 months now without any problems. Because of the 1st card though, I kind of lean toward recommending the ASUS to you. You win either way though.

Thanks guys, helped alot :) , are you both refering to the non gaming one? Or the gaming twin frozr 4? Do you have the grey one with the large heatpipe on the side?because thats the one im looking at, on amazon the asus is £148 and the msi is £155.
Would it be possible if you could maybe send some pics of them? What they look like in case etc? Thanks anyway

I have had my replacement one for about 4 months now. It plays all of my games on max settings with no problems. It keeps even the latest games up in the 50 to 60 fps area. Any games over a year old and it is beyond 60fps when the graphics options are maxed out. Brand new titles like Battlefield 4 and Assassin's Creed 4 may require a mix of ultra and high settings to stay above 50fps on a consistent basis but I don't know for sure as I have not played those on my system yet. I plan to and i suspect the 660 to handle it without any problem.

Here are some of the games I play for reference:
Far Cry 3
Skyrim
Assassin's Creed 3
The Crysis series
Metro Last Light
