I have a Dell U2711 monitor running at 2560x1440 and looking at spending around the $350 mark (I'm in Australia, so paying a bit more that you guys in Canada ). It look as though the 7950 Boost is the way to go at the higher resolution I'll be playing at, but would like others opinions.
Games that I play include Batman: Arkham (Asylum & City), Mass Effect 3, Skyrim, The Witcher (1 & 2), Dragon Age II (and III next year), Crysis (all of them), Borderlands 2 and many more.
From local suppliers I can get the Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 Boost 3GB - $339, Gigabyte GTX 660 Ti 2GB OC - $339, ASUS GTX 660 Ti DirectCu II 2GB - $359 & Gigabyte GTX 670 2GB OC - $419.
Well before at that resolution I would have recommended the 7950 even though some of these games used to run much better on nvidia I think after the new 12.11 driver release from AMD I would say AMD is the winner here.
Also I don't know where you are from both both the 7950 and 660ti can be had for under $300.
