I am trying to decide between video cards such as the GTX 660 ti and the Radeon

I'm building a new desktop and can't figure out what video card to buy. I was initially set on the 660 ti but recently I have been reading more on Radeon cards. I will be running games such as Battlefield 3 at 1920x1080 resolution, and was hoping to do that pretty much on maxes settings. My budget is up to about $350 but of course I'd prefer cheaper if it got the job done. Im not looking for ridiculous FPS, just above like 40 would be fine. If someone could help me with this, that'd be pretty cool. Thanks so much.

The Radeon HD 7950 is closest in performance (i.e. a few % less @ 1920x1080 for BF3) to the GeForce GTX 660 Ti.

The price of the Radeon HD 7950 seems to compete equally with the GeForce GTX 660 Ti after factoring in rebates.

Don't go below a Radeon HD 7850.

The Radeon HD 7870 would be my recommendation if you want an AMD card. Its performance is very close to the GeForce GTX 660 (non-Ti) and so is its pricing.

Have you also considered the GeForce GTX 660 (non-Ti)?

I have considered it as of you saying that, I guess my real question now comes down to whether I should get a Radeon card, or a GeForce card, probably either radeon 7870 or the GTX 660.

I think its more of a personal preference. I've always liked what I've heard from Nvidia, so that's what I got. I just bought a GTX 660ti SC by EVGA. It works great and I haven't had any problems out of it. I don't think I got my moneys worth when comparing to the 660 non ti. But if you're willing to spend at least 50$ extra for about 15%(if that) in increased performance, go for it.
