I'm going for games like BF3, star wars online, guild wars 2 etc etc......
I was going for the
XFX Radeon HD 7870 Core Edition AMD Graphics Card but i thought the Gforce 660 was the way to go.?????
That depends. The HD7870 is slightly faster although both cards really do trade blow. I say get the one with the features you need most (Nvidia PhysX, Adaptive V-Sync, TXAA or AMD Eyefinity, better compute power)
Actually, i just found this. 3GB XFX Radeon HD 7950 Double D, 5000MHz GDDR5, GPU 800MHz
That's faster than the 7870 and GTX660. However, price to performance wise, the 7870 XT (Tahiti LE) is even better. It performs somewhere between the 7870 and 7950 (closer to the 7950) but costs not much more than a 7870. They're pretty hard to find though.
