660 vs. 7870?

Right now I am not sure as to which card I want. I game pretty lightly, maybe a few hours a week. TItles include, BF3, BFBC2, Crysis warhead, possibly some other newer titles. For my gaming purpose, my HD 4000 is actually giving me what I want, but I am now starting to use this comp for 3d modeling, and after effects.

So really, which would be better for 3ds max, after effects and gaming? 7870 wins for gaming, but what about 3ds max and after effects?

Thanks.

    But i would recommend MSI because of Twin Frozr IV dust removal and cooling technology its unbelievable
  3. Or get a 660 ti or 7950 if you can afford them
  4. SO I guess the 7870 MSI would be my best choice. Will Nvidia's CUDA or w/e tech help with AE and 3DS max? I prefer AMD, but if Nvidia has the tech to better help in the programs I will be using then...
