My System Specs

Default HD7950 vs GTX660Ti

Radeon HD 7950 vs. GeForce GTX 660 Ti revisited - The Tech Report

This is an awesome in-depth article comparing the 7950 Boost vs the 660Ti. They use their 'inside the second' testing methods, which helps to illustrate 'choppiness and microstutter', as well as average FPS. They use the most current drivers from both camps (12.11 AMD, 310.54 Nvidia) as well as a crop of the latest games released (from both 'Gaming Evolved' and 'The Way it's mean't to be played').

Anyway, it looks like I'll have to change my recommendation of the 7950 over the 660Ti, even with the game bundles.

EDIT: There is a re-do of this article. Apparently some forum members on TR didn't like the fact that Win8 was used during the initial benchmarks. They thought that Win7 would provide a more fluid experience and a more competitive battleground for the 7950. So, TR does just that.

7950 vs. GeForce GTX660Ti - Flogging a dead horse

From the last paragraph in the article:

The question you have to ask is what matters to you. Do you want the graphics card that scores best in the FPS beauty pageant, or do you want that one that gives you the smoothest gaming experience when you fire up a freshly downloaded game this Christmas? If you just want bragging rights, by all means, choose the Radeon HD 7950. If you're looking for the friction-free fluidity that only comes from consistently quick frame delivery, though, our recommendation remains the GeForce GTX 660 Ti.
