Cosminrules is right about the drivers, and games generally run better on nVidia hardware (interms of consistent performance where the framerate isn't up and down all the time and interms of rendering correctly without glitches). If you go with nVidia, I'd recommend either saving yourself £50 on a GTX660 (since it's barely any slower) or putting an extra £50 on it for a GTX670 (since it has a considerable performance lead). The GTX660 Ti is a bit pointless when it's priced exactly half way between the GTX660 and GTX670 yet performs much closer to the GTX660.
the thing about the 670 is that the cheapest is $600 which is reference and the cheapest HD 7950 which is the gigabyte windforce one is only $470
True, but you can't really compare a GTX670 to an HD7950 interms of performance! GTX670 is much closer to the HD7970. GTX660 Ti would be a much fairer comparison (though I still wouldn't recommend it over the GTX660 since it's only slightly better than the GTX660 but priced exactly halfway between that and the considerably faster GTX670). GTX660 or GTX670 are both strong bets and should serve you well for a long time.
