7870 vs GTX 660?

Well I have a hard time choosing between those 2. I can get them for same price. So which one is better: Sapphire 7870 2gb Ghz edition or Msi 2gb Twin Frozr III?

  1. They are very close so choosing between them on the games you play the most is what I would do. http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/GTX_660_Twin_Frozr_III/27.html
  2. I would get 7870 for the bigger bandwidth.

    I'll be playing RPGs like Skyrim, Gothic 4, Risen 2, Dragon Age etc. And shooters like BF3, Crysis 2, Mass Effect, Metro 2033...
  4. Damn now I really don't know which one to pick! What would you guys pick?
  5. Either card will make you happy, if nothing else take the one you think looks better.

    I would get the geforce.
    But that's just preference
  7. Sadly, I've owned both an HD7870 and GTX660... Personally, I'm happier with my GTX660 though I loved my HD7870. If you intend to run at stock clocks, go for the GTX660. If you enjoy overclocking....the HD7870 will give you a bit more "bang for your buck" through it's ability to overclock further than the GTX660 can.
  8. I'd go with the GeForce personally. Don't worry about memory bandwidth - the Radeon only has ~5% lead in that regard.
