This is my system:
500gb seagate hdd
630w rosewill green series RG630 psu
msi r6850 cyclone 1gb OC edition
8gb ddr3 RAM
intel i5 2400 @ 3.1ghz
rosewill challenger case
asus p8h67m-lx motherboard
Acer x203h 1600x900 res widescreen

i want to upgrade my video card. My maximum price is 200$, i will be playing battlefield 3 on a 1600x900 resolution and i want the best card for the price of 200$ give or take 20$. If possible i would like to get over 70 fps on ultra most of the time. So far i have been looking at the EVGA gtx 660 2gb and the XFX r7850 2gb both around the same price.
Which card is better and will give me better results?
Which card is better for the price?

Thanks for the help :)

get the 7850 !!! the difference in performace is not much at all at stock but when you oc both 7850 and 660 the 7850 will be toe to toe with 660 with the new 12.11 drivers !!
not to mention that xfx 7850 looks awesome !!! thaty evga card is sooo boring to look at .. lol but i guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder.. lol

so your argument is to OC the 7850 so that its up to par with the 660?

Like I said before the GTX660 is more on par with the HD7870 which should rule out the HD7850 just based on performance. Both will overclock so saying to overclock one to catch the other is a mute point.
