Out the box, it's the fastest 660Ti with ASUS DirectCU II Top right behind it then MSI Power Edition / Galaxy OC (dual fan version) tied for 3rd being right behind ASUS Top.

Thanks for the review link, just read through it and some very interesting findings about this card. Even some of the framerates I was surprised.

Yes, yeah I can't wait! I'm going to go pick it up in an hour! biggrin.gif

Well the store I went to only had the Asus GTX 660 Ti and the MSI Power Edtion one in stock and even thought the salesman was all like the Asus one is better (which it isn't!) I went with the MSI one because I'll get GTX 670 performance with a little overclock.

I would have probably gone with an EVGA one over the Asus if they had them in stock.

I keep forgetting you live in The Philippines, that is great that they do have the MSI PE so you can OC it to get close to 670 stock. To me that is huge right there alone on that feature.

Exactly why I chose it over the Asus one! thumb.gif

I love how people here believe everything Asus makes is like the best thing ever haha. rolleyes.gif

Well, just making sure you clearly understand my comment in post #109, I did not say ASUS 660Ti was better than MSI P.E. 660Ti. I was talking about out of box performance only winksmiley02.gif ...Regards to OCing, EVGA FTW Sig2 & MSI Power Edition are the king of 660Ti's (without over-volting).

And at the end of the day all 4 of those 660Ti's I had mentioned can easily match a stock 670 performance thumb.gif ...So if you're into OCing the gpu, take your pick thumbsupsmiley.png

Playing with my GTX 660 Ti PE right now, I'll try and clock it to match a GTX 670. biggrin.gif

Don't try...Just be like Nike and do it! And let's hope your card is not a lemon.

Here's a review of your card being OCed to be a tid bit faster than a stock 670... http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/GTX_660_Ti_Power_Edition/31.html

I don't think I really need to at this point with Geforce Experience I'm getting 60+ FPS in everything I play so it's all good, I'll do it when I have nothing else better to do. tongue.gif

I also posted this in the 660 Ti Club thread,

In a few months, if I can get a used 660 Ti FTW Sig 2 for around $200 or less used would it be worth going SLI?

Do you guys think that a 600W PSU can carry that load with my current specs in my signature? I also just added the Corsair H60 to my system since my last posts and I also have my system now in the HAF XB case. I know I would need a new mobo to do this for sure.

That 600 watt should be fine. and Yea if you are going with an older card, I would def go SLI. I noticed a difference when i put my 660ti in a couple of weeks ago. Especially because the price will be going down even further.
