Default GTX 660 Vs. HD 7870 LE

Hi all.
Im helping a mate with a new build. And already found all the items for it, but on the graphics side im a bit in doubt. I been reading ALOT of reviews, and with the money he has, i've reduced it to these two cards.

MSI GeForce GTX 660 Twin Frozr 2 GB

Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 XT W/ Boost (Tahiti LE) 2GB GDDR5

They both cost about the same in my country, and the HD 7950 cost to much.

So my Questions are;

In the reviews it looks like the 7870 wins on performs, but what if he dosent overclock, will the 7870 still be the best card?

I heard that ATI drivers suck, is that true, or is the drivers for the HD 7*** okay now?

I dont know how to say this... but some ppl are saying that 7870 has more fps, but that gtx are more stable, framerate? is that true?

What card would u get, and why?

Hope u guys will help Thx you.
