Which is better and why

I'm buying a graphics card to complete my build soon and these are the two I'm looking at


HIS IceQ H787Q2G2M Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161404


ASUS GTX660-DC2O-2GD5 GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121660

I was going to just order the amd one but I started reading about physx and watched some vids and it seemed pretty cool. If the difference in fps is only a few I'll go with the nvidia. But if it's somewhere around 9 or more I'll go with the amd.

I have an i5-3570. 8 gb of ram. And a 650 watt psu. I want to play stuff like Skyrim, fallouts, starcraft, End of Nations, and Elder Scrolls Online.

I you can suggest a better card for around the same price I'm willing to get a card other than these two.
