Need Help, Can't Decide between Graphics Cards

Hello,
I am building a my first system, and can't decide between the
Msi GTX 660 ti
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6814127696
or
the Radeon HD 7950
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 50&x=0&y=0

This rig will mostly be used for HD video rendering/editing, Photoshop, and gaming. Both the cards are around the same price point, and I want to know which one is better for the money.

Specs;


CPU- Intel Core i5 3570K 3.4GHz LGA

Motherboard- Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H LGA 1155 Z77 ATX Intel Motherboard

GPU- GTX 660 ti or Radeon HD 9750

RAM- Corsair Vengeance 8GB RAM

HDD- 1TB SeaGate Barracuda HDD

SSD- 64 GB Samsung SSD

Drive; Lite-On LightScribe 24X SATA DVD+/-RW Dual Layer Drive IHAS424-98

PSU- CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650

Case- Cooler Master HAF 922 OR NZXT Phantom 410 white

  1. Any help here please?
  2. 7950, IMHO. It beats the 660Ti in everything except BF3, where it loses by a few FPS.
  3. The 7950 is better for applications that need GPGPU like video editing and they perfom on pair when gaming (the 7950 has a slight edge tough)
  4. I would advice you go for Nvidia. I am an ATi user for the last 3 years, and i am suffering. I have HD 4870, but its absolutely annoying. I still remember by good old days with Nvidia :(

    lol

    I'm also looking into dual-monitors, and it doesn't look like the HD7950 supports that.

    The 7950 support 4 monitors -_-"
  8. I think it even supports 6. Not sure, but dual-monitors, definitely!

    Next week. Some companies like HIS have dropped some of their prices, while others are at their normal prices. Expect all that to change next week.
  10. When are the price cuts coming?
  11. Thanks.
