[OFFICIAL] GTX 660 (NON TI) Owners Club. - Page 224

post #2231 of 6755
Yung, I'm still not convinced about the GTX770 over the GTX660. For 1080p, I would still prefer the raw power of the GTX660 in SLI. It's basically equivalent to a Titan and the GTX770 is a little improvement over the GTX680. Especially as I can't afford the GTX770 in SLI.

If you can't afford 770 in SLI, definitely don't get a 770, your 660 in SLI is in the same performance level with the Titan and 780. I am only switching to 770 because i would be going SLI pretty soon (at least until i sell my second 660)

The upgrade total will be 360$ if i sell my 660's for 220$ (already sold one). Some people said i would loose money, it will be harder to sell, blah blah blah... (single GPU lovers). But i had a blast with my 660 SLI and i am just upgrading like everyone else does.

You know what? Just wait till you can afford it, if you can then switch to 770

Will a Corsair HX650W handle them in SLI? What about my 2500K as a bottleneck?

PSU, NO, it won't, might need a 750w or higher.... 2500k might bottleneck quite a bit (you just won't just get optimum performance), but it will do fine if you overclock it to about 4.7-5.0Ghz

Ouch! I'll probably stay with my single GTX660 till the GTX8xx and do a full upgrade.

Thanks for the clarification. thumb.gif

2500K @ 4.5GHz will not bottleneck anything and doesn't need to go higher unless you just want to push it higher.
PERIOD.

hoping it makes a great pairing with the Gtx660s.

Your first name wouldn't happen to be Gilbert, I know an old friend that said he still used a gtx285 in Tucson.

My name Is not Gilbert, but I know a lot of people here in Tucson... There isn't a very large "tech" scene down here...

Alright, just wondering, old school friend in Tucson still uses an old gtx 285, was trying to see if he was on here at all, not sure if he's into gaming like his high school days.

These were the only things that stood out between the lightening and the G series.... "not really worth it, IMO" Msi knows that "regular people" would buy the lightening, because it has their "unlocked bios" tongue.gif.... But if you are an enthusiast like myself, you don't need the lightening... There is always a bios unlock for higher voltage wink.gif, and btw, i can flash the lightening's bios and have a lightening myself biggrin.gif

Dang man, now you got me thinking I should just do some side jobs for a 760ti.
