Title says it all! I'm a new builder, and this is what I have so far: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/D72t.

I think every other part is fine, just stuck on a gfx card. It'll be used for gaming(Bf3,CoD,Crysis,WoW, etc..)

Thanks!

Budget is stuck around 890 for the whole build.

Benches look neck and neck on those two. I'd go with whichever is cheaper or comes the best gaming bundle you'd actually use.

I would narrow it down to these two. The 7870 XT wins in price and I think it will be a little more future friendly. Otherwise they are very similar.
I play WoW, Borderlands 2, Diablo 3 and Civ V all at max (WoW is tweaked a little) at 1920x1080 while carrying over 50 FPS easily on the AMD card in my sig. so I wouldn't let what card one game or another does a little better on sway you too much.

And they are both compatible with my build so they will right correctly, right?

Sorry, trying to learn all of this stuff :)

7870XT is cheaper and the 660Ti is barely faster, I'd place them neck and neck, depends on whether you want 150 in F2P money or 2 free games.
