Default Sapphire 100354XTL Radeon HD 7870 XT with boost

Is the sapphire 100354XTL worth having over a Nvidia 660? I keep hearing about driver issues with the 7870 and I just wonder if they are as big of problem as I have heard.

Thank you

Personally I'd take a 7870 over a 660 after AMD has improved their driver a lot.

That 7870 is going to be faster, but it would depend on price for which I would pick.
