Default Radeon vs Nvidia

Okay. I'm sure this question has been asked many times, but I have two choices between graphics cards and I can't decide. I come to you all with my dilemma hoping someone will help.

Here's the link to the cards:

Newegg.com - EVGA 02G-P4-3660-KR GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Newegg.com - XFX Double D FX-787A-CDBC Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition Black Edition 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Thank you all in advance

They are very very closely matched cards in terms of performance from what I can see, so following my logical trail of thought:


You can decide, either one will be as good as the other and the 7870 is a tad cheaper, but if you tend to have a preference towards NVidia then that wouldn't be a bad choice either.
