Specs: Windows 7
Hi guys! Need you to help me out. I'm helping a friend to build a new PC and my budget of $250 led me to these two graphic cards. Right now I am trying to figure out what to buy between:

PowerColour ATI Radeon HD7870 -

Gigabyte nVidia GeForce GTX660 -

Please click to expand the specs for each cards. Basically they both have 2GB DDR5 memory and PCI-E 3.0. I don't know i\f I should just go with the cheaper one which is the ATI Radeon HD7870. Performance-wise, which is better? Thanks.

See if these will help you to help your friend decide.
I have nearly always leaned towards NVidia since way back when a supposedly upgrade purchase of a Radeon card was a disappointment. I have heard many who like their cards and their value is generally better so I try to keep it from coloring my recommendations. I hope that the above information will help you make the right decision since it is nearly always a balance between price and performance when making these decisions.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Performance-wise they're pretty much the same. Which card do you currently have? Do you have a power supply that can handle the needs of a high end gaming card?
