Hey guys I just put together a new pc tell me what you think and also I'm looking for a video card that can run all the latest games on high settings preferable Nvidia.

I was choosing between the 660 Ti or the 670.
Will either one be able to run games maxed out?
Or should I go with something else

My Build:
i7 3770k
Asus P8Z77-V LE Plus
16 gb patriot viper
750 watt corsair psu
128 gb corsair force gt
Corsair 400r

I like my 7950, but if your dead set on nvidia i believe the 670 will perform better from what i understand, especially oc, though its more expensive than 660ti.
Nice rigg! Its all about how much cashish~$$$ you have to spend. Because the 660ti is fairly new release, may have premium price atm?
For the price of one 670, = 2 x7870,s or there about.
