AMD has stepped up their drivers as well though. I went with the 660 ti because at the time AMD drivers were crappy and crossfire was a "stuttering mess" but in the past few months and the upcoming fix for crossfire AMD cards are looking much nicer. I'd still stick with Nvidia as I need the cuda support on occasion.
I can benchmark a few things on my 660ti if you'd like. Both at stock and OC'd, which mine happens to be a monster with clocks (1224 core, +454 memory currently) without voltage modifications. Quite frankly at 1080p I have no issues playing games at full settings, with reduced AA/AF, which a 7950 will need reduced slightly as well in order to keep great frames in everything. I think the only thing that taxes the card a bit was Crysis 3 and a modded Crysis 2. Bioshock ran smoothly at full settings, Witcher 2 ran quite well full settings too (4x AA).
Either way you can't go wrong. Both are great cards.
The 7950 wins in some, the 660 wins in others. Don't care about OC results as you could get a crap card that can't OC at all or get an amazing card that gets a ridiculous OC.Edited by TwilightEscape - 5/13/13 at 9:45am
