I going to build a gaming pc but i am stuck on either the gtx 660 ti or the hd 7950.
i'm going to play games like BF3, borderlands 2, the new medal of honour coming out and dayz/warz.

i recommend you to get the gtx 660 ti because its more future proof, and it has way better drivers than amd

yea i think ill probably get 7950, from what i've seen is that is competes with 660 ti at stock speeds but kills it in the overclock

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.

+1 for hd 7950 :D 
As bigcyo1 said gtx 660 ti not worth it.....

7950 will perform better at higher resolutions and at higher AA.....
hd 7950 has a 384 bit bus and a higher memory bandwidth as compared to the 192 bit gtx 660 ti

I'd definitely go for the hd 7950

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.

There is no such term as Future-proof.. all it will take is the next DX or a new game to be released and the future is here.. I've learnt this the hard way..



As it so happens the 660 ti is the way to go.. I have done a bucket load of reaserch on this card and I too will be buying one soon.. :sol:
