Gtx 660 vs radeon hd 7870

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!
