As it is right now the GTX 600-series has all the newest Technologies (FXAA, TXAA, Boost). The AMD series doesn't have any of those. The GTX 660 also surpasses AMD 7850 in performance.

You can turn FXAA on in some games if you have an AMD Card, but Nvidia can in almost every game.

AMD can't support TXAA at all, it's a Nvidia thing - Just like physx.

The GTX 660 has boost, which Means it overclocks itself. I got the GTX 660 and when gaming it goes from 980 mHz to 1110.5 MHz.

The performance of the GTX 660 is on par with 7870 and GTX 580.

I would recommend the reference cooling design by Nvidia. It will have decent temperatures in every Tower. While other cooling solutions will be bad in some cases.

Yea I agree with songorocosn, 660 rules, dominates the 7850 - It gets 20 or more fps in battlefield over the 7850, and has similar performance to a 7870.
It's a no-brainer.

HIS cards aren't the best, but a 660 dominates a 7850 anywhere, any brand, any game - its not worth it, get a 660!

Get a Sapphire HD 7850. you wont regret it. The 660 may be better in some games but that does not mean the 7850 is not worth it. I had a sapphire 6850, now my brother uses it, and no problems so far.

1. AMD 7850 is better performing than the 660
2. AMD can use physx
3. AMD cards can be overclocked in CCC
4. the GTX660 is on par with the 7850 and the 660ti is on par with the 7870

i own a pair of saphire radeon HD4850's now and i will tell you the 660 is a better choice.. i love my amd card, but the 660 does perform a bit better than the 7850, but that's not even the main reason i recommend it. i like the cooling much better. my amd card has heat pipes and keeps the card very cool, but the heat is dissipated into the inside of the case. the 660 uses a squirrel cage style cooling that acts as a slot cooler and forces the heat from the card out of the case. this will greatly reduce heat inside the case. this is noticed even more when you utilized 2 cards in xfire or sli. my cards still perform very well, but i too am looking at getting the 660 to replace them.. i have done research and the 7850 performs near the GTX660, but not quite but for me the cooling is what makes it the clear choice.

I think what you are referring to is simply a stock cooler. Those don't really perform all that well and are usually decently noisy.

Neither really. The performance increases wouldn't be worth the money spent.
