Currently running a Evga GTX 660 would it be worth it upgrading to either one of these cards:

http://www.ebuyer.com/342450-gigabyte-ati-7950-gv-r795w...

the amd card is only around £5 more then the geforce card so maybe that's a better deal..

Also currently running with AMD fx 6300 @3.9ghz & 8GB RAM.
I like to play games like Battlefield 4, Farcry 3, Crysis 3, Metro Last Light...GTA V whenever they release the pc version :p 

Kind regards,

Simon

They're not worth the upgrade. Don't upgrade yet, wait for new AMD hawaii series or the GTX 800 series to be available in the market. Besides, the GTX 660 is a very capable card. You will not see a really big difference if you upgrade.

Thanks mate i was thinking when they will next launch the new series of cards, knew it would be sometime at the end of this year.. but I'm only looking at splashing around £200 on a new card so i hope they will be something decent for me later on in the year.

Your cpu is fine with both gpus, although it might hold down the performance in some cpu intensive games, so i recommend upgrading your cpu AFTER you have made sure you got the best gpu you can afford. As a comparison bet ween the cards, the gtx 760 has better stock performance, but the hd 7950 has higher overclocking potential, if you overclocked it decently, it even can reach the level of hd 7970, but you need to make sure you have good cooler and psu for the overclock (i think you might have to overclock the cpu as well, its amd). However, as you are going to play bf4, as performance both cards are higher than the recommended cards(you have the recommended one), but hd 7950 has 3gb of vram which is the biggest advantage of 7950 in my opinion, you can play at higher res with higher AA settings. Getting away of all this, you have a decent gpu and i recommend you sli it if you have the suitable psu (can you mention it?), this will give you much better performance than single cards you mentioned.

My psu is a OCZ Stealth Xstream II 700W PSU - 6x SATA 2x PCI-E, Motherboard is a Asus M5A78L/USB3 AMD Socket AM3+ 8 Channel HD Audio ATX Motherboard which does not have sli :(
