nVidia GTX 660 Ti - Advice Needed

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
In my soon to be complete gaming setup, I have chosen to use a GTX 660 Ti. I was wondering if I should switch to a different graphics card, and i also want to know how fast it would run games such as:
Borderlands 2
COD Black Ops II
Battlefield 3
Medal of Honor Warfighter
Starcraft
Garry's Mod
Just Cause 2
Day Z

with this setup:

CPU: Intel i5 3570k 3.4 Ghz - 315
Ram: Patriot 2x4GB 1600 CL9 - 67.5
Motherboard Asrock Z77 Intel - 199
Case: NZXT Phantom - 220
PSU: Thermaltake 700W - 125
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB - 135
SSD: Intel 60GB SATA 3 - 95
Graphics Card GeForce GTX 660Ti - 465
Optical Drive: LG 12x BLU-RAY COMBO - 91
CPU Cooler: CM Hyper 212 - 56.5
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium - 133.5

Did you have a price range for the card?

The 660ti should be a solid choice, presuming typical resolutions.

Agreed, It's a great card for 1080p. I'm using and overclocked 670 FTW with my 1440 monitor and get decent frames in basically everything (I just turn off AA in very intensive games). You should be at least as good or a little better off than me at 1080p.

Mine are awesome at 5760x1080... heavy pretty settings in AC3 hinder the SLI, but that's kinda given right now. Other than that, Great cards. But I'm coming from SLI 660Ti's on surround setup

My price range would being anything around 550 New Zealand Dollars, and thanks for the other comments guys, because that kind of cements the idea of getting the 660 Ti.
Thanks!

Get a 7970 or 7950, whatever's cheapest. Much, much better.

OP if you prefer a Nvidia card then go with the GTX 660 Ti. otherwise get a HD 7950 OC or HD 7950 boost. these cards match GTX 670 at stock and when overclocked can easily compete with overclocked GTX 680s. the gigabyte HD 7950 OC(900 Mhz) comes with an excellent windforce3x cooler. cost 508 nz dollars. clock for clock HD 7950 is 5% slower than HD 7970. you can overclock HD 7950 to 1.1 Ghz easily matching a HD 7970 Ghz in performance. Even a 1.3 Ghz GTX 660 Ti has no chance against HD 7950 (1.1 Ghz)
