[Official] NVIDIA GTX 660TI Owners club - Page 78

post #771 of 3662
I just ordered a parts upgrade for my wife. She's getting an i5 3570k, ASrock Extreme 4 Z77, and 8GB of RAM. Hopefully it will be here on Friday.

Perhaps that will let this card stretch its legs a little bit more. biggrin.gif

I had the same decision to make when I got a 660 Ti. I went with MSI because they have a 3 year warranty which is one more year than Zotac.

EVGA also has a 3 year warranty, but most of their cards use the reference style cooler which I didn't want.

She's still on a dinky E8400 Core 2 Duo, so she needs an upgrade that's somewhat futureproof. Besides, if her system is seriously that fast, I will be getting one for myself too. thumb.gif

The Zotac 660 Ti AMP is roughly the same price as the eVGA 660 Ti FTW Signature 2. I wholeheartedly recommend the FTW Signature 2 over the 660 Ti AMP. It will clock the same, if not higher than the AMP, and to top it off, it uses a reference GTX 680 board with a dual fan cooler, so the cooler is much more beefy and the board is far superior to that of a reference GTX 670 or 660 Ti. The FTW Signature 2 is a 660 Ti on steroids. wink.gif

Thanks to reply fishymamba and Mad Pistol,but i only can choose between the zotac and the msi model,because in my country there aren't much options of grafic cards to choose frown.gif
So i can only get these two models
post #777 of 3662
Well, at least for my two MSI PE in SLI, they are silent and very cold. I highly recommend them. However, the Zotac does have the extra gb of memory... I couldn't tell you the pros of that because I don't have the card to check myself. Hopefully someone with the 3gb amp chimes in soon thumb.gif

But, you won't be sorry with the MSI PE if you get it, mark my words! biggrin.gif
post #778 of 3662
as an owner of a MSi N660GTX-Ti PE/OC I can stand by what Samurai707 is saying.
I have had a total of 7 different MSi TF models through the years, they're my favorite.
N250GTS 1GB OC
N460GTX Hawks (SLi)
N560GTX-Ti Hawks (SLi)
N570GTX PE

next up N780GTX.... wink.giftongue.gifthumb.gif

Hey guys, I was in search of some vram answers on Hitman Absolution and since Juano reminded me that the ti seems to have issues with mem bandwidth(high AA I believe can cause it or high res) it would be a good card to see if the card struggles on some of these weird scenes that apparently spike vram usage. I'm assuming if the game actually does need more then even 1.5GB on your cards it should show some big dips in these parts even with 2-4x AA because of the supposed mem limitations you guys have. Maybe 1440 res in SLI 660 ti like Juano suggested.


Everything on my part is purely an assumption since I don't own Hitman and the only 2GB card I own is the Sapph E6 5870 which is too weak to even run the game with high settings , so I was wondering in anyone in the club who also owns the game could help us out. I guess this could be a good test to see if non mod games are really making the 2GB start to maybe not be enough.
