A small help between two cards

With the help of the guys in this forum, I've decided to build a gaming PC

My res : 1336 x 768

here goes the specs:

CPU : Intel Core i3 3220 3.3Ghz (3rd Generation)

Mobo : Gigabyte GA-H61M-S2P-B3

PSU : Corsair CX500 v2 500W 80+

RAM : Corsair 4GB XMS3 1600 Mhz CL9 DDR3 stick

HDD : WD Caviar Blue 1TB 7200RPM SATA 6GBPS

So the deal is, I was suggested to go with a GTX 660

But in my country there are no MSI,Asus, Gigabyte,Sapphire and the famous other VGA card brands for the GTX 660

The only card available is Axle Geforce GTX 660 2GB DDR5 , theses cards are imported to most asian countries. I'm worried about it because there are no good reviews about this card (except the axle website).

I have been told that the HD7850 2GB has a same performance as the 660, the card thats available is Sapphire Radeon HD7850 2GB DDR5 OC..

I have never used the Radeon card before in my life but I can't risk my money by buying a card from a brand (Axle) that I have never heard.

so guys what do you think? Axle Geforce GTX 660 2GB DDR5 or Sapphire Radeon HD7850 2GB DDR5 OC ? Please don't suggest any cards pricier than this.

Thanks :)

The 660 gtx is better than the 7850 and has the same/almost performance with the 7870.
Never heard of that axle brand, sapphire is a good brand.
At your resolution the 7850 will be enough no need for 660 gtx with crappy brand go with the sapphire 7850.

Will I be able to max out games like assasins creed III and Hitman : Absolution? I was so excited about the rig, I bought these two games today :D 

What are the special features HD 7850 have? If I overclock it, will it perform like a GTX 660?
