Right now i'm trying to decide between the gigabyte and galaxy 3gb 660ti's. Looking for suggestions.

I know, 3gb? why? Because i would like 2 or 3 way sli them down the road and 3gb is much more suiting for that situation. Plus who knows what the future holds for vram usage.

$239 Asus DC2/OC sweet deal if you are near a Fry's

Well, instead of asking people to do the research for you, why don't you just do it yourself if you want to be a jerk about it?

That aside... there have been plenty of articles ALREADY linked in this forum I believe about the 3 gigs of VRAM not being necessary on the 660Ti's 192-bit interface.

The reason he suggests going 670 is because clearly if you're thinking 3-way SLI, you're hopefully going to be on a much higher resolution or Hz screen. You will definitely not be as hindered as you would be on a 660Ti with a 670 due to PCIE interface.

Now I believe all of this was posted in some articles in this thread, but I'll let you look for em thumb.gif

i was all for a debate. However I get extremely defensive when treated with condescension. My apologies for that.

I'll try to deal with this 5850 for a while longer while i get up the extra 120$ for a 4gb 670.

i get over 2gb vram on my 660ftw but yeah the 192 bit bus kills fps to 10-20 ... yet my friend with 670 4gb has no problems even on 2560x1440

okay... i found the test you guys are talking about, i think. makes MUCH more sense now.

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-660-ti-memory-bandwidth-anti-aliasing,3283-11.html

it looks like forms of anti-aliasing really kill the memory bandwidth limited cards... with even the 7870 beating the 670 at 8x

this chart illustrates it very well i think. it almost makes the amd cards interesting.... almost.

Pretty interesting, hadn't come across that one before. I'm almost wondering if I botched it by going with the 660 Ti? Then again, if all my games run fine with 4xMSAA/4xSGSSAA, then why should I be worried? The wormhole of GPU comparisons is never ending, its almost scary to sift through review after review. laughingsmiley.gif
