<10" GTX660ti or GTX670?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi all,
I'm looking to replace my HD7870 (which I returned due to artifacting) with something from nvidia in my mITX build (Sugo SG05). I'm limited by a card about 10" long, and I don't intend on spending more than the mid-300s CAD.
That said, do you think its better if I get something like a eVGA gtx660ti SC (about 279), Zotac GTX660ti AMP (which would cost me around 309) or spend a bit more and get a reference PNY GTX670 (for about 329)? Or even eVGA GTX670 reference (at 344)? (Prices are all from NCIX, which is where I will be buying from)
The small price difference makes me consider the GTX670 because of the higher memory bandwidth. That said, I want to save as much as I could since the 7870 was only 220! tongue.gif

thanks

edit: just wanted to say that I'm intending to game at just 1920x1080, but will have a second monitor of the same resolution open at all times. Heat might also be an issue because of my case...

Get the reference PNY GTX670 and overclock it yourself.

I just purchesed 2 x EVGA 660 Ti SuperClocked for 240$ each from cyberpower PC.
Not sure if they will give you the same deal because I was buying a full PC. But you might want to inquire with them. They may sell you a single card.

Good luck.
Happy time PC.
