    I would choose a 7870 over the 660.

    Here is a benchmark comparing the two. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/548?vs=660
  3. The 7870 will always outperform the 660 alone the 660ti matches with the 7870

    really? that is total BS. Maybe you should read a proper review, or any review at all http://techreport.com/review/23527/review-nvidia-geforce-gtx-660-graphics-card/11 the 660ti is closer to the 7950 and certainly outperforms the 7870.

    Calm down man no reason to take what he said personally o.o
  6. I'm gonna go with the 660 here. He plans on playing AC3 and the GTX660 comes with one, that's a bonus. Plus, AC3 runs faster on Nvidia cards vs their respective counterparts from AMD

    In BF3 or Skyrim however, they pretty much trade blows. You really can't go wrong with either. I only recommend the 660 because it comes with AC3 so you don't have to spend more money on the game afterwards
  7. 7870 is better then the gtx 660 but you can't pass up this deal

    http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=76172&vpn=66NPH7DN6ZVZ&manufacture=Galaxy%20Technology&promoid=1201

    a gtx 660 for $190 after mir.

    Mail in rebates do come, but game coupons don't.
  8. i got my AC3 (and got AC2 also which i wasnt expecting) with my game coupon. I didnt have to send in for the coupon they gave it to me at the store, an MSI promotion.
  9. Try for a Msi 660ti Pe (THERE VERY NICE) :)

    Yea.....not so much. http://www.hwcompare.com/13140/geforce-gtx-660-ti-vs-radeon-hd-7870/

    Depending on which review you read, both cards are close enough to call it a draw, so it basically comes down to personal preference.

    Please don't use HWCompare. "Please note that the above 'benchmarks' are all just theoretical - the results were calculated based on the card's specifications, and real-world performance may (and probably will) vary at least a bit"

    It doesn't translate to actual gaming performance. If you want to compare 2 cards, use Anandtech's Bench
