I was about to buy a HIS 7850 iceQ x @ $202 yesterday but then I saw a Pcolor 7870 @ $234 and a Palit 660 2gb oc ed @ $239. I could extend my budget a little more if it's worth it. The problem is I don't know if it's worth it. What do you guys think?

TY in advance for your help. =D

Comes down which one you want more, the 660 will give you less performance but a better gaming experience due to physX, and other features that nvidia only provide..

but for the 7870 you will possibly get more fps in games but in physX games not so much.. the 660 will beat the 7870, so yeah it basically comes down to which one you want the most the 660 you're getting looks really really nice it has LED on the fans so yeah if you care about the looks of your game and well the looks of your graphics cards then i would go with the 660 :) 

If you don't care much about the physX .. i would get the 7870...

Sir, how much % in performance increase does the 7870 and 660 have against the 7850? About how much fps will the 7870 get more against the 660? Also is the powercolor's cooling good? I think I might get the 7870 if the performance increase is highly significant

Wow! I didn't know that. I think I'll get the 7870 but is the Powercolor's cooling good enough?
