Default Radeon 7950 or GTX 660

Hey, I'm sort of a novice when it comes to graphics cards and my current computer is a statement to that.

Anyhow to get to the point I'm attempting to build my own gaming computer and have filed down 2 different graphics cards that are in the same price range.

So my choice is between
EVGA Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 SC Signature2 3GB (186)
or
PowerColor PCS+ Radeon HD 7950 Boost Edition 3GB (192)

Have any of you ran into these two cards and if so which would you recommend? Or are my choices rubbish and you recommend something else for the same price tag?

Thanks to all who viewed this and another thanks to all who reply!
(Im also sorry if someone has previously asked this question, but I failed to find anything comparing these two cards)

Nvidias are better in my opinion, in using a 660 ti with 2 gb gddr5, don't have any problems

7950 is the superior card.

If you don't mind me asking I'm just curious as to why you personally think that Nvidias are better?

Thanks again!

People just become fan boys of particular brands (normally the more expensive brands) and will not be swayed. not saying Kmart1212 is a fanboy tho...lol

always look at comparisons between cards, and never judge on if AMD or Nvidia or intel vs AMD processors

I'll admit, I'm an AMD fanboy, but I don't let that cloud my judgement.
