It depends on the price of the GTX660 and the HD7850, I would say the GTX660 would still be a bit faster than HD7850 even after overclocking and CAT12.11.
If the price difference is small I would go with the GTX660, otherwise HD7850 would definitely be the choice. thumb.gif

GTX 660 is faster on stock speeds, but it doesn't overclock as high as hd7850. In some games 660 is even faster than a 7950. Selling point for me would be Nvidia's better drivers and physx feature, there isnt really much of a difference performancewise.

Here is a review/comparison

its $219, and its not marketing crap, the fans spin backwards at startup to pull out any dust in the heatsync, then they spin normally to cool the GPU. not marketing crap.
