except for the same price, the 7950 beats it up.

1gig extra of vram+ 320 bit bus vs 192 bit bus, overclocks to 7970 levels and can level and somethimes beat a stock 680. so thats 300$ card beating a 460$ card. quite the bang for bucks sir.

I think he's asking for what 660 ti has the better performance, the question here was a 660 ti.
There's several benchmarks that says the 660 ti is better, the overclock stuff not all the cards will overclock the same, some might even crash with just a bump in speeds.
@op, the asus has a custom cooling system with dual fan, which is better than a stock cooler, and it's really quiet, there's several reviews out there backing it up, that asus is the cheapest card 660 ti with free shipping and one of the best.
It's a good choice.

the 7950 will outperform a overclocked 660ti onced overclocked anyday.

dont spread false information.

and the 7950 even lightly overclocked will beat a 660ti.

if u want to max out games get a 7950 or a 670 gtx.

I just gave a link with BF3 at 1200p at ultra settings with 60 fps and beating the 7950.
I think it can play any game at high settings, some might not be at 60 fps, but it will play any game at 1080p at high settings with a good amount of fps, the enough ones to have a good experience.
Also there's the driver support which is better with nvidia and nvidia has exclusive features like adaptive vsync, txaa, physX.
Also there's this : http://techreport.com/review/23981/radeon-hd-7950-vs-ge...

There's nothing wrong with going with a 660 ti for 1080p, it will give a good gaming experience.

those are all just bling features , physx is only used in a few games,

txaa is just a fancy form of anti-aliasing, adaptive vsync u got me there.

also since the new ati drivers, theres been a performance increase, and ur comparing non overclocking 7950, overclocked 7950s have been known to beat a stock 680 and beyond.

well the 660ti is only 20$ less than a good 7950, for the price the 7950 is def a better bang for the bucks.

theres nothing wrong with the 660ti, i personally own one but if u could go back id of bought a 7950 instead.
