I've been building a new computer at the moment all I need to choosing the right graphics card my build is

Intel i7 3770k 3.5
ASrock Extreme IV LGA 1155
750w psu
8gb crucial ballistix sport (came free with the motherboard plan on upgrading in the near future)
128gb samsung ssd 840 pro
1tb wd blue

I'd love a 680 or 780 but I just don't have the money, best I can afford is a 3gb 660ti. I'm probably looking to get one of the EVGA cards but theres so many versions not sure which is the best

If you bump down to a i5-3570k you might be able to get a 670. Are you a Nvidia fanboy?

Yes I was looking at that and http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... its only $20 more after the rebate will there be a huge difference in performance? I'll probably end up overclocking it a bit as well

The MSI card will overclock farther than the EVGA card because of the better cooling also if you were doing a overclocking a 7950 will give you better yeilds than a 660 ti OC but since you are a Nvidia fanboy I won't try to convince you XD.
