Hi guys, I'm building a computer. I'm gonna be doing a lot of gaming, so I'm deciding between GPU's. I wanna know which is better, an oc gigabyte gtx 660 for 240 USD or a Radeon hd 7870 (also gigabyte, not oc)for 270 USD. Please take into account all of the specs of both cards, including the 660's 192 bit memory bus, before answering. I will be doing gaming mostly bf3 and I want ultra settings. also which is just an all around better card? Thanks!

Both cards trade blows if your not going to overclock i say go for 660 if your going to overclock you need to get a non reference 7870 and overclock the little beast you might also want to check this chart and see which games favor the games you play most click on it to enlarge and check link if you don't understand it

Do you intend to overclock if not the 660 is the way to go if you intend to overclock the 7870 is the way to go simple as that
