Please link your rig to your signature. this way it would be easier for others to take a quick look at your system

-back to topic, it depends on what are you planning to achieve, what games are you planning to play, how much are you willing to spend on a graphics card, and what resolution are you willing to play on, (the monitor is not listed in your rig).

the GTX 660 Ti is such a sweet card but it all depends on what you are trying to achieve, for example what FPS will you be comfortable playing it, how smooth you want your game to run etc...

The 7950 is an all-around better card than the 660 Ti (if willing to go AMD), but the 660 Ti outperforms the 7950 in BF3 and likely borderlands 2.

It's up to you if you want a card that'll cater to your niche or the better all-around performer.

another vote for going amd, i think it'll serve you better in the long run, since it outperforms in most other games

If you want Borderlands 2 then the 660ti is a no brainer, I know the 7950 outperforms the 660ti but its not by a huge margin, and it will of course flip flop depending on the game. I was set on buying a 7950 until I saw physx on Batman AC, I think it makes the game better and I was willing to sacrifice a few FPS for it. You can't really go wrong with either, just flip a coin biggrin.gif

HD 7950 is the better card across a wide range of games. Gigabyte HD 7950 (900 Mhz) is a good option

If you want GTX 660 Ti get the MSI GTX 660 Ti Power edition.
