If you insist on Nvidia, the GTX660 would be Nvidia's direct competitor. Unfortunately, Nvidia are pretty much terrible value across the board for current gen cards. I don't think there's a price competitive Nvidia card at any price point just now.
GTX 660 v Radeon 7850
The 7850 beats the GTX 660 by quite a lot in some games but is typically about £20 to £40 cheaper if you compare the 2GB version of the 7850.
There is no 1GB version of the 660 but if you're gaming at 1920x1200 or below, there doesn't seem to be much benefit from the 2GB version of the 7850 in current games.
Club3D 7850 Review
If you're looking for quiet cards, I've always found Asus Direct CU and MSI TwinFrozr cards are very quiet and cool. Otherwise you'll have to look at individual reviews.
