As the title says I want to know which one you think is better. They are the same price and the MSI comes with farcry 3 (lol).

My other specs are:

CPU: i5 3570k
Mobo:MSI Z77A-G43
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1tb
Case: Antec 200 V2 Atx
RAM: Corsair XMS3 2x4gb DDR3-1600mhz Desktop Memory
PSU: Silverstone SST-ST60F-ES Strider Essential 600W 80 Plus Certified Desktop PSU
OS: Windows 7 64 bit

P.S provide reasons for your answer and sources etc

Also, no Sli or xFire

yeah if they're the same price, it's a no brainer, 7870. If they are the same price and the 7870 comes with far cry 3, it's..... stupid..... to get the 660.

Well i am a bit to tired to provide sources and go through hoops.I would just say both are great choices.I think if i was to pick between them i would get 7870.The MSI Radeon HD 7870 HAWK is the MSI Lightning's smaller brother. It uses the company's signature Twin Frozr II dual-fan cooler. MSI has also increased the clock speeds of the HD 7870 HAWK to 1100 MHz GPU and 1200 MHz memory.It can be overclocked even further.

Thanks to both of you and I think I will take the 7870, Radeon seems to be better value for money and the Far Cry 3 is just the cherry on top :) .
