IMO, the 660ti needs to drop about $20-30.
AMD drivers are atrocious - there were at least 4 or 5 games last year that were unplayable for me on launch date because of their shit. Catalyst is an absolutely ****ing disaster. Their OpenGL support is garbage.. I don't guess you have a crossfile setup - waiting for crossfire profiles is always fun.
Aside from a $$ standpoint - Nvidia wins.

With that said, I've grown to like my 6970 but I'd only recommend AMD GPUs to people who are on a tight budget.
