KFA2 = Galaxy btw, but as I said, ASUS and Gigabyte are the most silent/temperature~efficient ones.

Remember that pretty much ANY 660Ti can overclock to 670 levels with a simple BIOS Mod and with temps in check.

You mean past the factory OC and boost OC speeds when you say that I hope. I normally use a GPU for 2-3 years and plan on getting the second 660ti once winter hits. This would be my first multi GPU config so I def want it to last if I am spending around 500. Originally I was going to get a 660 but once I saw how much better the ti is it seems like a no brainer.

After reading that article the ASUS is looking nice. I have an ASUS display and Sabretooth MB as well to compliment them.

If you're gonna pay that much... might as well wait for the 7xx if you can. That'll net you a 770 I believe, which would be a little faster than a 680 without OCing. something like 5-10% faster

I take my previous comment back Tigerdirect has the 3gb TF2 for $280 with a $20 rebate.

So tempting but I would need a new motherboard and power supply frown.gif

@Tong but not every 660Ti can reach reference 680 performance.

And honestly - I didn't see too many changed BIOS 660Ti's doin almost 1400 stable MHz on Core and almost 8000 on memory without triple overvoltage feature (and on MSI there is a really good memory cooling solution + this is Hynix which OCs like crazy).

Overvolting was called an issue only by tomshardware and repeated by some other sites. I prefer to read xtremesystems in this matter smile.gif It is not a real issue and MSI covers it with 3 years warranty. If it would cause problems I'm sure my card will die before those 3 years running 24/7 at 1320 MHz/7200 MHz clocks.

I need a decent card now and since the 7xx series will just be faster Keplers with the way my budget is the 2x 660ti should tide me over until the 8xx come out.(which are supposed to be worth the wait due to a big increase in CUDA cores).

Oh I thought you were just getting one and lived in a country with ridiculous prices for cards (like our friends from down under rolleyes.gif )
post #2287 of 3662
I live in one of those countries. frown.gif

$500 for a GTX 670? Yup!

$500 for a 7970? Yes!

$400 for a GTX 660 Ti? Yes!

Don't listen to those tourism ads, it's not really more fun in the Philippines. rolleyes.gif

OK so I decided on the MSI PE and I see they have a regular PE: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127697
and then a factory OC'd PE: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127696

My question is are the factory OC'd cards the ones that performed better during testing and thus are better binned chips than the non?

I stated that is what I have, OC'd version = FTW..
bought to put mine back up for sale.
post #2290 of 3662
In a few months, if I can get a used 660 Ti FTW Sig 2 for around $200 or less used would it be worth going SLI? I just bought the 660 Ti last week. Do you guys think that a 600W PSU can carry that load with my current specs in my signature?
