This should give you an idea i tryed to make them as accurate as possible to the settings in the OC

7850 still does a better jobs with pixels and GB per seconds so yes indeed you might look into that but mind you trying to push an already Oc card will result in fail but im sure you will be ok with it just as is

I think a stock GTX 660 is faster than a stock HD 7850.
Nvidia GPUs also have got better drivers support, and more features than AMD GPUs (like PhysX, FXAA, TXAA,...)

I'd buy the GIGABYTE - Graphics Card - NVIDIA - PCI Express Solution - GeForce 600 Series - GV-N660OC-2GD

Radeon cards seem to over clock better from what I've seen in the past and can be pushed a bit harder.

Personally I hate Ati cards... Yesterday my AMD 4870 X2 burned, like all my Ati cards i owned...

With Nvidia I never had a problem...

uhmm for the record that card is atleast 5 years old and your complaining it just burnt out consider yourself lucky

with how much RMA is on hardware you can't point the finger at anyone and besides the chart states which is faster which is the 7850 because the memory bandwith rate is alot higher meaning more data is being reported and the pixel fill rate is higher as well it beats the 660 in the categories you would look at the most

Also an HD 5670 and an HD 6750 gave me problems, and they aren't 5 years old cards... The HD 5670 never showed me something on the display and the HD 6750 made the system reboot every time I launched a heavy graphics game.

Personally I'd buy the GTX 660 OC, but the HD 7850 seems to be a good card too... I hope that AMD HD 7000 series is much better than the previous ones...

In reviews the GTX 660 is a little faster than the HD 7850, but the difference seems to be minimal... The 2 cards should have - more or less - the same performance level...

Where did you see that review?
It gets confusing. Im still debating on what my next card will be, but I believe the 78 and 79 series are compared with 680's, and 690's.

GeForce GTX 660 2GB - Performance Analysis and Conclusion | bit-tech.net

the GTX 680 is faster than the HD 7970, and the GTX 690 is faster than the 7990...
The AMD HD 7800 series GPUs are compared with the GTX 670 (and sometimes with the GTX 660 Ti if superclocked), and the HD 7900 series GPUs are compared with the GTX 680.

The GTX 690 (dual GTX 680) and the GTX TITAN (single GK110) are compared with the small number of editions of the HD 7990 (dual HD 7970): for example, the Powercolor Devil 13 or the Asus Ares II...
