I would choose a 7870 over the 660.

Here is a benchmark comparing the two. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/548?vs=660

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-geforc... the 660ti is closer to the 7950 and certainly outperforms the 7870.

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

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

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
