The 660 Ti is better at stock clocks , but since the 7950 is cheaper and OCs like a beast , there's no reason not to go with the 7950 thumb.gif

Well HD7950 boost is around stock GTX670 performance wise so it is slightly faster than 660ti, how much cheaper is that 660ti btw?

Who knows, maybe you get excited about free 30% performance boost and end up overclocking smile.gif, but regardless 7950 gets my vote.

Really depends at what resolution you're playing and your noise tolerance biggrin.gif
