Hey guys i need a bit of quick help and i am choosing between the 660 and the 7870, i can get both for around £160 so price isnt a problem but just wondering which will perform better in crysis 3, which basically means it can run anything. Please help,

Cheers, Jake

Hi Jake,

As far as I can tell from reviews and benchmarks the hd 7870 is faster. Although it can depend on the prices. I mean if you are at your budget I believe the gtx 660 is slightly cheaper here in the UK. In Crysis 3 I don't think many people know yet as it is not out. Are there other games that you enjoy playing? As if you are a massive fan of something like Borderlands 2 you may want the PhysX for that. I recently bought a GTX 660 non ti as it was all I needed for my 1080p gaming and it was £15 cheaper than the hd 7870. Also what resolution do you play at?

Overall hd 7870 beats gtx 660 with latest drivers.it will handle crysis 3 but can't say it can maxout because i heard that there is no single gpu which will touch 60fps on everything maxout as crysis 3 is most demanding game ever .For above 60fps you need crossfire or sli.but iam not fully sure

they seem to be different price points to me, 7870's start at $210 vs 660ti are $280.
the question should be 7950 vs 660ti. 7950 hands down.

7870 has excellent overlock scaling and provides more bandwidth

both cards r nearly equal in performance ,660 better in a game ,7870 better in another .However u should go for the cheapest and the one that comes with better game bundles
P.S if u r not looking forward to overclocking the card i'd recommend u 660 ;)

My vote goes to HD 7870

=> Great overclock ability
=> Better price/ performance against 660
=> CRYSIS 3 huh! it would even be able to play GTA V ( not released yet)
=> Its the Best mid gaming graphic card ( courtesy TOM'S HARDWARE )
