I know 7870 will perform the same but that would be in 1080p and overclock 7870. But anyway, I can't remember why I first chose 660 ti. When I checked this thread I asked myself why 660 Ti? should have been 7950. And hey, he don't plan to overclock so you can take of those overclock build. Go with something like this,

I remember now why first I chose asus, because you said you want a quiet pc, asus is know for the most quiet cooler out there so If you want you can go for asus 7950, but sapphire will also be fine though and also cheaper.

Yes, very nice build. Also another option is the CM Storm Enforcer as it has 2x 200mm fans for quiet airflow
