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:

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.

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.

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.
