    i actually purchased that MSI 660ti and then returned it. I have had 2 new Nvidia cards GTX680, then a 660ti both with bad stuttering problems and I know I am not the only one. I spent the money on a MSI 7950 OC edition and could not be happier! AMD's new driver is awesome as well and butter smooth for me. I highly recommend the 7950

    I'm considering the same upgrade atm (660ti vs 7950). I'm leaning towards the 7950 since it has 3gb ram and more memory bandwidth so that will help a fair amount at 2560x1440 for me. I'm only worried about moving away from nvidia drivers.

    In that scenario i would choose the 7950. That card can overclock set it to something not overkill like 1000 and the performance will be great.

    More like 660ti<7950<670<680<7970GHz.. (by far..) with the current drivers.

    If overclocked it's pretty much 660Ti<670<7950<680<7970GHz.

    I dont think he is kidding. Actually looks pretty accurate. I wouldnt say by far.

    He's pretty much spot on tbh.

    Things are skewed even more in AMD's favour at higher resolutions with multiple GPU setups.

    I can guarantee my 7950 at 1100/1575 performs on par if not better than a 670, maybe even a 680 in some cases. It all depends on which is cheaper and which is more appealing to you. A 7950 with a decent cooler and the Never Settle bundle is pretty good deal, unless you play AC3 of course.

    Stock @ 1920x is like this:
    GTX 680 - HD 7970 GHz Edition
    GTX 670 - HD 7970
    GTX 660 Ti - HD 7950
    GTX 660 - HD 7870

    That's with 12.11 and 310.45 drivers. OC and 2560x or multi-monitor results change in AMD's favor.

    OC only results in ADM's favor.
