My System Specs

Default Sapphire 7950 OC (900MHz stock) or MSI 660Ti PE

Here in lies my question.

Which card would be best mostly do gaming

Sapphire 7950 OC (900Mhz) Dual Fan Edition
or
MSI 660Ti Power Edition

From what I've read they are both pretty close unless overclock right? Mind you that's with stock 7950's?

If you are gameing with a Samsung SyncMaster T220 then it does not really manner,altho at lower resolutions like 1680 x1050 the GTX-660 TI seems to come out on top most of the time .Plus it uses a little bit less power which in turn should'nt run as hot ,excpecially if you get a ASUS DirectCU II or the Gigabyte Windforce.Which ever you want to run you need a bigger monitor at least a 1920 x1080,If you are like me I game on my 50" LG PM6700 Smart 3D HDTV.It looks really good on it ,I was going to buy a 30" 2560 x1600 ,but the price made me stay away when I got so much more with my 3D HDTV.But it looks like you already have two HD 7950 you could go with a Tri monitor setup since the Samsung T220 is not very high just $150 a monitor.
