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

7950, IMHO. It beats the 660Ti in everything except BF3, where it loses by a few FPS.

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)

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 :(

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

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.
