Question about GTX 660 and HD 7870 - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Both at the same price, the 660 Ti is the winner, but not by a whole lot. Still, if the prices are equal, the 660 Ti is the one to get.

Too bad here in the states the Ti commands a $50-70 premium over the 7870, in which case, the 7870 is the better value.

Unfortunately you can't pair your new GTX 660TI with your old GTX 460 in SLI, however if you don't want to sell your old card you can still use it as a dedicated physx card. This can yield up to 15% performance gain depending on the game and resolution. Here is an example with a GTX 680 and GTX 460 as dedicated physx card.
