not taking the piss or anything but did you even read what i put all i asked was will its run them games on highest settings and what Card to get 660 TI OR HD 7970
Yes it will play those games on ultra with either graphics card except Dirt showdown and maybe GTA 5 and as for which one the 7970 should compete more with the 670 not the 660Ti so it is the better card but should be priced accordingly. Read this reveiw of the 660Ti for comparison,review-32505.html
That review came out very positive for AMD cards this one not so much



Yes, and did you read what i put ?

Why waist all that money on postage buying from different etailers, when you can buy more for less from one?
