GTX 660 Ti vs. GTX 670 - Page 8

post #71 of 363
Between the 2 cards, 660ti and 670, I would go with the 670. You should always get the strongest, single GPU solution. It leaves you with a better upgrade path in the future.

And, as far as the AMD vs nvidia debate is going...i think AMD makes great cards but I have yet to see something as vastly different as Borderlands 2 running Physx on AMDs side. Is there anything out there like that?? Honestly, I'm asking....ha. What i mean is, do AMD cards have any feature like Physx that some games are built to use?? I know some games run 5 fps or so faster on AMD but I'll gladly use nvidia, take a 5 FPS drop in some games and be able to put the Physx that it has to use in games like Arkham City and Borderlands 2

I thought the strongest single gpu solution is the 680?

It is, but he means the strongest single GPU you can afford. 680's are disastrously overpriced.

No proprietary tech from AMD, but take a look at Dirt Showdowns Forward+ or Sniper Elite V2 for some showcasing of what computeshaders can do in terms of graphics and performance.

Take note that there are some games where AMD performs more than 50% faster than Nvidia's cards in games, I have yet to see an Nvidia-card delivering more than a 30% advantage.

Nope, the 7970 GHz beats the 680 at 1920x1080 and the gap widens as you increase the resolution towards eyefinity.

Yeh and for people that only game at 1920x1080 the 670 is good enough. I think I'm gonna go with the Gigabyte 670 OC, the one with 3 fans..they also have the 670 WF which only has two fans for the same price, its about .5 inches smaller.

Hmmm, I'm leaning towards the 670 now because of all your comments. What other reasons make the 660Ti NOT bang-for-the-buck?

That's crazy, 660 is 25% less costly and performs within 95% of the 670. For green cards, that sounds like the best bang to me.

Well if you want the stock 660Ti there is one available for $299. The 670 I was talking about is overclocked already and you can also overclock it more yourself. Clock speed is 1058Mhz on the gigabyte but the newegg review video said it reached up to 1198 when they were testing it.

Its up to you really and what card you had before. I had the 560Ti and the 670 is a good upgrade for me since its three tiers up on the hierarchy. A good rule of thumb is to upgrade at least 3 tiers up on the gpu hierarchy list. For me going to a 660ti from the 560Ti would be a performance increase but I get 30% more going with the 670. Goring from an example Evga 570 to a 670 you get roughly about 50% increase.

The good thing is if you get a factory OC 670 model for $399 it performs much better at 1920x1080 or higher resolutions. The performance drops on 660ti at higher resolutions.

There is the key right there. If you are like me and don't turn on AA 99% of the time, the GTX 660ti is a fantastic choice. If you want AA and other advanced features like Tessellation activated, then the GTX 660ti loses its value. In my opinion the 660ti is a great choice for people who want high settings, but don't care too much about AA or AF (Anti-Aliasing & Anisotropic Filtering).
