Skylit wants a new video card. 660 or 660 TI?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter

I game @ 1080p
post #2 of 15
I had a 660 and I now have a 7950 with a second on the way. Seriously for the price a 7950 destroys it. It overclocks in msi afterburner to almost max'd on the sliders and gets 117fps avg in bf3 with the fps capped at 120. Really hope you give the amds a shot its the new king IMO.

Don't forget the vid mem is only 192 bit vs 384 on the amd and really hurts the cards potential and fill rates

The 660 is uses GK106 while 660 Ti is uses the same chip as 670 and 680 (GK104) with only have 192 bit bus. So if you interested in NVIDIA, then go for 660 Ti...I've seen a lot of positive feedback from the user in here.

For the 660 side, the highly-regarded EVGA GTX 660 Superclocked is currently on sale for $190 after $10 MIR at Newegg, and Gigabyte's WindForce model is $188 after $20 MIR.

The notable 660 Ti deals are MSI's Twin Frozr ($270 after $20 MIR), ASUS' DirectCU II model ($280 after $20 MIR) and Gigabyte's WindForce model ($284 after $20 MIR).

Just in case you've forgotten, here's the reference specs on the two cards:
Code:
NAME    CUDA TMU ROP SMX BASE BOOST MEMCL BUS MEMSZ TDP MSRP
660      960  80  24   5  980  1032  6008 192  2048 140 $199 
660 Ti  1344 112  24   7  915   980  6008 192  2048 150 $299

Well the 660 TI is faster obviously but also costs more. To be honest though In that price range (200-300) the best bang for your buck would be the AMD 7870 LE from powercolor. It's a 7900 series chip that essentially is a 7930. When OCd it has been shown to beat an nvidia 670.

As mentioned above (and it kills to say this) but they are right. Go with AMD on this one. They provide Much more performance for the price.

Thanks. I'll look into that.

Kinda wanted Nvidia this round to take advantage of specific features that reduce rendering latency (built into NCP), but seems there's healthy competition this year.


I currently run a 5850 flashed with 5870 bios. Bumped to 900/1250 via CCC. For a 3 year old card, I amazed these $200-300 new gen cards don't flat out destroy it.

Yeah AMD is amazing in this generation, I can't believe how amazing they are now, considering a few years ago, their driver is problematic. But in this generation, they almost pull ahead against NVIDIA.

AMD = 7950

NVIDIA = 660 Ti ( as you wish )
