Really? worriedsmiley.gif I guess I should save for 1080p 120hz monitor then.. Or would a 1440p monitor be much more future proof?

There is no future proof. Here is the simple answer. Do you want a bigger monitor or are you fine with your current size? If you want a bigger one go for at least 22" LED or something like that you will get 1080p.

Well I am fine with my monitor's size, its just disappointing that it can only reach 1600x900 resolution despite being a 21.5" monitor. When I decided that I want a new card I thought that I could finally game at 1080p but then I learned screen resolution does not only depend on GPU but also with the monitor's specs. redface.gif Its really depressing I am such a noob hehe.

Yeh well my monitor is 21.5 inches, advertised as 22." Its an Acer LED and before I bought it I looked at the maximum resolution. I believe 1920x1080 is what that is. At the time I was buying they were pretty expensive.

I'd wondering again about a comment someone made that asked:
"The 660ti and 670 are the same except for the 670 having a higher bit rate, but the question is if this higher bitrate is worth $100".


I'm in a situation where I must buy a new card. I'll be playing Witcher 2 / Crysis 2 Battlefield 3 at no higher than 1080p with ultra high detail and 4xAA / 8xAF settings. I have no plans of buying a higher resolution monitor.

Need confident suggestion. 660ti or 670 for maxed 1080p 4xAA / 8xAF.
If it matters; I'm using PCIe 2.0


ADD: Major backpedal. Just bought the 7950 Windforce. It costs the same as any 660ti.

If you want 8x aa and such the extra bandwidth from the memory of the 670 will help. The 192 bus of the 660ti limits it a little.

Backpedaled and ordered the HD 7950 after noticing that (with rebate), both 660TI and 7950 cost exactly the same:

660TI

7950

Albeit only $10 more, but come on,,, $10 more for an extra 1GB and the higher 384bit. $10 is the same cost that desktop DDR3 is. Here you would get the 1GB plus much more; I'd be a fool not to take it.

Actually, it's the 24 ROPs that limit performance in the 8xAA scenarios, not the memory bandwidth.
AMDs ROPs are simply more efficient than Nvidia's ROPs at higher precision: http://www.hardware.fr/articles/866-6/performances-theoriques-pixels.html

Can't go wrong with the 7950 either, similar price and if the 1gb is worth it to you then that is what matters , congrats smile.gif

Hey guys i need some help...Im looking at both of these cards the 660ti asus oc or top versions and the gtx 670ftw edition or the galaxy version of the Ftw. I plan on playing demanding games like BF3 and such and also looking at buying a 120hz monitor later this year. The real question.. is it worth 70-100$ more to upgrade to the 670?? does it make much of a difference at all? I would love to save money and im stuck at what card to buy.
