higher resolutions then it will be somewhat of a hindrance.

This is what had me a bit nervous about being switched over to the 660 Ti. I game at 2560x1600, but I'll also be running an SLI set up. Right now I'm only running a single card and it hasn't had much problem with what I play on the PC.

I'll be able to report more once I get the new motherboard here and installed.

Furmark kicked it in the teeth when set at 8xAA and 2560x1600. But then, I expected that.

Not as good cooler, but the company's rep makes up for that. EVGA they have the best RMA process out of everyone from my personal experience. Plus, this model is eligible for the step up program, if you want more horsepower just send the card to EVGA pay for the price difference and get a 670 or 680.

If you don't care about having the best RMA in case something goes wrong, or care about the upgrade program then definitly buy the gigabyte, this model has the best stock cooler in that price range.

Hope that helps, I recently bought the 660TI and it murders most games at max.

I would look for a reference design in case you plan on water cooling. Otherwise I would stick with a good company that has a reputation for overclocking and having a good warranty. I would recommend EVGA.

As far as I've read in a roundup (can't remember what site) only ASUS and Gigabyte use their own PCB design. Both also performed best when OC'ed. Whereas the ASUS ran cooler due to its better cooling solution, I got the gigabyte because it was cheaper and I'm modding the cooling anyway ;-)

Seems farcry 3 will require me to put +800 offset to my 660 TI to get 182 gb bandwidth, which puts it above a GTX 480 and 10 gb below a GTX 580/670/680.

That should be enough for 2560x1440 with 2 MSAA? Because 4-8 MSAA is not needed on such high resolution, but any input on this?

don't count on it. Get a 670 for that resolution.

and what, waste $400 on at best, a 15% improvement? i rather spent that much to get at least a 60% improvement or better.

Hey guys, got a question about overclocking.

Will power limit increase affect the boost clock while gaming or is it for when you want to achieve higher overclocks?

For example:

OC1: Core +50 / Mem +400 / Power Limit: 100%
OC2: Core +50 / Mem +400 / Power Limit: 113%

Will OC2 give better performance? or will only draw more power?

power limit affects how long and often the GPU stays in boosted state. and yes, it will draw more power of course, and there's added stability as well.

Also, do +800, it is stable on my reference EVGA 3 GB Superclocked. don't be afraid, do it.

and leave core clocks the same, this card needs memory overclock big time.

I understand what your saying about MSi PE cards but the article is overblown..
