I have been looking at building my first gaming rig and was wondering which card would suit my needs best.
I have been looking at the
Sapphire radeon hd 7870 OC edition £188
AMD radeon HD 7950 £223
NVidia GTX 660Ti £231

I am going to use this card for games such as crysis, civilisation V, Team fortress 2, Battlefield 3 and other games too.
My budget is about £190 so the 7870 is perfect for that but is it worth it to upgrade to the 7950 or 660Ti?
If so which one is the best?
I dont need ridiculous FPS I just need at card that will run games at playable rates (40-60 FPS).
I am also looking for a card that will survive the newer engines and still be able to cope with games like Far Cry 3 and Crysis 3 when they are released.
Thanks :)

I am unsure of resolution as I have not bought a monitor yet however I think i will be playing at 1920x1080
My specs are:
i5 3570k
ASRock extreme4 z77 or ASUS p8z77 V
8gb Corsair Vengeance
Cooler Master 212 EVO
Antec three hundred two
Graphics Card undecided
XFX Pro Core 850w
Western digital caviar green 7200rpm Sata III 1tb
LiteOnIHas Drive

Also another quick question:
Will my case fit all the components in as I know that the Cooler Master 212 EVO is quite tall?

I have also seen the GTX 670 but this is £270 and its £80 over budget, is it really worth the extra £80 seeing as the 7950 seems to perform on par with it in most games?
