I have this one (one you have listed)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I love mine so far, silent in my phantom 410. runs cool at 36-40c idle and doesnt get above 60-62c when I'm playing most GPU intensive games. looks great and it has a nice price to match. i do not overclock with it, everything stay at stock settings ^^

after looking at it the main difference between what jemm picked and mine is 50MHz on the core clock ^^ mine being 850MHz and the gigabyte being 900MHz same price. id go with the gigabyte :p  but it will be YOUR GPU, so pick which one you really like and want the most, never let people decide for you. after all you need it for your needs :p

i have actually gone with a 660ti direct cu2 coming tomorrow in the mail, many titles im going to be playing use physx and they trade blows fps wise at 1080p so i took the green side this time as my 7770 drivers were horridly unstable when i got it.

honestly I think the two are similar at stock. bring overclocking into play and the 7950 beings to pull away. but it honnestly comes down to what he needs, although be didnt specify he need to OC, i think the 660 is a great choice, plus i think its cheaper :p 

ohhhhh and AMD > Nidiva :p  imo tho haha

The current gens yes AMD tends to come out better. THe HD7950 just has so much more longetivity going for it. But anyway.

it was 30$ cheaper and matched what i needed more, i want the best experiences to my gameplay not best frames. and as to ill be playing mostly nvdia titles this upcoming gaming year i chose the 660ti for the simple fact that it has phyx and i wanted that. accordingly my 7770 plays all the games i want now above 60 fps except crysis 2 witch i get 55 fps in witch is enough for me so down to it the 660ti is still a very big bump from where im at now and along with that i get physx and driver support, witch to my experiences amd is very lacking in. so yes 7950 does get higher frames but id prefer to get that slight knock on the frames for physx and a card i know will not have driver problems.

The driver issues are nonexistent for AMD these days.
Barely any games use PhysX, but at least that is a semi legit reason.
