Hi, this is my first post, so bear with me. I'm currently taught between 2 cards. the choices I have are the XFX HD7870 GHz Edition 2GB, and an EVGA GTX 660 2GB. Games wise I'm currently only able to run 720p (using my tv as a screen), and both can run modern games on max at that resolution no problems.
Here's the thing. At the start of next year I'm going to college for videogame design and developement. I'm wondering which would be better for the rendering process. I also value the PhysX from nVidia quite highly, due to some of the games I want to/will play. I looked at their benchmarks game wise on ANANDTECH and some are better with the GTX, others with the XFX.
I need help. NOTE, they are the same price for me.
