GPU advice needed Nvidia or ATI?

Hey guys,

I was advised today to go for the GTX 760 over the 660 but then someone else said the HD 7950 would be a better choice all together.

Now I'm only going to be running one monitor and playing Battlefield 3 (possibly 4) mainly and maybe an MMO so I don't think I'll need a super powerful GPU (as it may end up being a waste of money cause I might not use all the memory it's designed for).

Now is there a benefit to using Nvidia over ATI? Are some games made with either in mind?

Or was the guy just trying to get more money out of me?

Thanks for that. It's still a bit of a tough decision. I just watched a BF3 comparison between the 660ti and the 7850 and I could have sworn the 7850 looked better but people were just interested in figures. The 660ti had better fps so it's quite annoying as there isn't a clear better card
