If they are priced same, definitely go with the Evga Gtx660 Ti Sc 2gb , GTX 660 TI is faster than a HD7870 and it comes with Physx for a more realistic gaming experience and eye candy.

if its the GTX 660 Ti then go for it. its faster than HD 7870. your thread title is wrong. as you ask GTX 660 vs HD 7870. that would be emphatically in favour of HD 7870.
