You don't think the PowerColor using the Tahiti chip is a better buy than the XFX with the older Pitcairn chip?
I realize the clock speed on the XFX is higher, but the Powercolor is supposed to OC well.

And what if you Overclock GTX 660 Ti?

Please don't compare a Overclocked card to a Stock one.

Not to mention that Gigabyte cards are Voltage Locked and cannot be Overclocked.
So get that 7870 I suggested.

Are you kidding me?
MSI Power Edition Overclocks very high.

Watch this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ibuXcStgYF8
After 3 Mins, there are some Benchmarks of 7870 OC vs GTX660 Ti OC.

And the video is from a Reputed User, LinusTechTips
Instead of your Review which was from a unknown guy with a Phenom II X4 965BE @ 4Ghz

The TI on the 660 means it is already overclocked where if you get a stock 7870 you can overclock it a lot better

Ti doesn't mean Overclocked.

And if a 7870 will be Overclocked even 200Mhz from Stock it will not beat a GTX 660 Ti which would be even Overclocked 100Mhz.

You can't compare Clock speeds in 2 Different cards.
7870 @ 1100Mhz will not be faster than a GTX 660 Ti @ 1000Mhz.

So, please admit that a GTX 660 Ti beats the crap out of 7870.
Its on the par with 7950.

PowerColor card WILL outperform the XFX no questions asked, as it is a Tahiti Le based GPU, much like the 79xx series cards, not Pitcarin like the regular HD 7870, not to mention it has more stream processors 1536 and 1280 respectively and a higher memory clock at 1500MHz. This card will also outperform the 660ti and is a lower price point.
