If you can find a gtx 660 (NON TI version) for less than a 7870 grab it. THe 660 according to tomshardware benchmarks are equal to if not a little better depending on title. Per usual the 7870 wins a few as well. So again, base it on price.

Keep in mind that if you're going to be playing a game like Borderlands 2, you should go with Nvidia because they are the only brand of video cards that can enable the feature PhysX, which are going to make your games look better in terms of graphical performance.

As u can see 7870 beats a gtx 660 in almost every game except batman AC as it supports physx , BF3 and Portal2, starcraft

BUT IMO 7870 is still better when it comes MSAA and higher resolution

I can only name two or three modern games that use PhysX and use it properly (only one more game in the works that also uses it properly anytime soon). Furthermore, you can use PhysX with an AMD card. You simply get a $60-80 Nvidia card to run as a supplementary PhysX card.
