Both of these are at the spot of money I'm looking to spend.

Current Specs
OS: Windows 7 64bit Home Premium edition
Processor: Intel Xeon e3-1245 3.3ghz
Graphics: Sapphire Radeon HD 6850
Motherboard: Asrock Z68 Extreme 3 Gen 3 UEFI
Ram: 12gb(2x2gb+2x4gb) G.Skill DDR3 1600mhz CAS 9
Hard Drive: Western Digital 320GB SATA III 7200rpm
Sound Card: Asus Xonar DG 5.1

I do not trust the 7870s due to many issues plaguing them as well as I really don't like the power draw on those.

Between those two, get the 660 gtx, it's better than a 7850, you can check all benchmarks around the web, the 660 gtx is better in all of them.
