As the 7950 keeps up with the GTX680 when overclocked (check toms review of the Club 3D 7950 Royal King) , I'd go for the 7950

As said above, unless you have a specific requirement for CUDA or Nvidia the 7950 is pretty amazing for the price when overclocked.

Also most CUDA apps now support OpenCL (eg: adobe photoshop, sony vegas, powerdvd, gimp)

Although the cooler might not be great on that 7950, the core will still be faster stock vs stock than a 660 ti... With overclocking (normally you'll hit stability issues before you hit temp issues with GPUs) that will only go further

If this helps at all, I'm running 2 1680x1050 monitors (only gaming on one). Probably won't need the 3GB of memory the 7950 has.

OP has stated he uses CUDA accelerated apps so the 660ti may be the better choice.
