GeForce 760 or Radeon 7950 for 3Ds Max?

I'm not primarily a gamer, but I will be getting a discrete graphics card when building a new system and wondered which would be more suitable for 3Ds Max? Specifically if 3Ds Max will be able to utilize the hardware on either card more appropriately, or similar.

The two I was looking at were: 2GB nVidia GeForce 760 or 2GB ATI Radeon 7950? Can't really afford anything more expensive.

The rest of the system will be: Intel Core-i7 4770K 3.5GHz, Asus Z87 motherboard, 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 RAM and Windows 8 x64.

AMD graphics cards are at a disadvantage with 3ds Max.

Also, you'll probably want more than 8GB of RAM.

yeah, you would like 16GB or RAM, at least.
About the VGA card, I do not know your scenes and workflow, but GTX660 should fit 90-95% work scenaraios, including complex archiviz, evene GTX460-560, are still powerfull for most of the scenes.
the rest of money, you can invest in some 120-250GB SSD drive, you will no regret!

i have a nvidia 670 , which does fine but i got a bit of a lag on about 3/4 of a million polys when using the topology toolset.

mudbox i can go up to about 2.5 million w/o really noticing much. I dont think its professional quality card, but it renders really quick even for high poly models.

edit: I also have a 3770k intel, with 16gig ram, and a 128 ssd.
