According to toms hardware its a bench marking chart for all gpu's and the 7850 would be better than the 660, you could also Google reviews on sizes of screens but usually bench marking scores are the best thing to look at

Gtx 660 is a bit faster and proportionally higher priced IMO. It's really down to preference.

I believe 660 is faster, benchmarks vs the 7850 prove this, thus id go with nvida.

save for a bit longer and get a 7870 :D its only a few $$$ more than a 7850 2GB and alot have rebates w/ them too. I have a 7870 2GB on an LG IPS 22" 1080P screen and it handles BF3 very well at ultra settings.
