  1. The 7870 is faster both are great choices get which ever is cheaper.
  2. they go neck to neck but 7870 is better on higher resolution on which resolution you re planning to play would help in suggesting
  3. I usually play on 1920*1080 or 1600*900
    Then what should I pick?

    Both cards are similar. The 660 cards are bottlenecked more by Anti-Aliasing at 8x vs 4x rather than simply the resolution.

    The HD7870's also come with a Far Cry 3 coupon, but I think the GTX660's have an Assassin's Creed 3 coupon.

    *Note the average gaming performance has the HD7870 beating the GTX660 but BARELY. Other considerations:
    1) Note WHICH GAMES ran better on which card.
    2) What FREE GAME do you prefer? Assassin's Creed 3 or Far Cry 3?

    Basically you can't go wrong either way.

    Choose between these two cards:

    or

    I simply can't choose between them. If I were FORCED to pick one (assuming you don't care which GAME you get) then it would be the HD7870.
  8. GTA4:
    BTW, that game is the ONLY game I've ever had serious difficulties running. I have a great gaming rig and the game still locks the frame rate oddly. For example, I got 44FPS at 1920x1080 and all settings HIGH then a HIGHER frame rate at 2560x1440.

    However, no matter what I do (even on LOW) I can't get the game to lock to 60FPS with no screen tearing. Sigh. I finally gave up.

    Saints Row the Third which is similar however looks and runs far better.
  9. That's because GTA4 is notoriously CPU-bound. I'd take the GTX660 if cheaper - like people have said you'd never be able to tell the difference in speed.
