if you can afford it i would get the gtx 670 but if not then i would get the 7950. if you want to play borderlands 2 then you get it free with the 660 ti and gtx 670

Gtx 670 is out of my reach...Coz im buying 2 cards for my rig & for my brothers rig...
We usually play dota 2 , crysis ,BF3 & some more FPS & MMO games together..
But my bro wants to play some upcoming games like NFS MW2 , crysis 3 etc at ultra settings... So , i need to know which is the best among these 3 cards mentioned up.

nice. so no problem running any card on the planet :) 

first, i would like to state that i would be apprehensive at getting a card with 192 memory bus that costs more than $220. so i am not going to recommend the 660ti. that is my personal philosophy, right or wrong.

looking quickly at a few reviews; according to these benchmarks the sapphire 7870 OC does hang out of the box with the sapphire 7950 OC; making it a good buy for price/performance.

and according to these benchmarks the sapphire, when overclocked a little further (1100/7360) can surpass the XFX DD 7970; making it the best performing card IMHO.

so, if you want the more powerful; get the 7950 and overclock it. though i must also state that mileage will vary when overclocking but if you only get (925/5500) it will still hang with any of the big boys.

Sapphire 7950 OC, 1100 very possible on air, the VaporX can hit 1200 but its way more expensive.

a 750 watt (esp a seasonic) will handle overclocked 7950s in CF no problem.
