I would choose a 7870 over the 660.

Here is a benchmark comparing the two. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/548?vs=660

I'm gonna go with the 660 here. He plans on playing AC3 and the GTX660 comes with one, that's a bonus. Plus, AC3 runs faster on Nvidia cards vs their respective counterparts from AMD

In BF3 or Skyrim however, they pretty much trade blows. You really can't go wrong with either. I only recommend the 660 because it comes with AC3 so you don't have to spend more money on the game afterwards

Yea.....not so much. http://www.hwcompare.com/13140/geforce-gtx-660-ti-vs-radeon-hd-7870/

Depending on which review you read, both cards are close enough to call it a draw, so it basically comes down to personal preference.

Please don't use HWCompare. "Please note that the above 'benchmarks' are all just theoretical - the results were calculated based on the card's specifications, and real-world performance may (and probably will) vary at least a bit"

It doesn't translate to actual gaming performance. If you want to compare 2 cards, use Anandtech's Bench
