What NVidia card is suitable for my build ?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi guys.
I am building a new semi-budget gaming rig.
Now I have everything except the Graphics card.
I dont know what card would be suitable, I just want to buys something that suits the CPU etc.
A card that will not bottleneck the gpu and a gpu that will not bottleneck the rest.
It will be used on a 120hz 1920x1080 monitor, most modern games will be played.
I was thinking maybe something like GTX660TI or GTX 770

Here is the spec:
Asus P8H77 M-Pro
Intel i5-3570
Crucial BallistiX Sport 16Gb 1600Mhz
Samsung 840 250GB SSD
CM Silent Pro 700w
Windows 8

Thanks smile.gif

The 770 is going to be far superior to the 660ti, so it gets my vote.

If your budget allows a 770 get that especially since your on a 120hz monitor. If you want to save money you can wait to see what the 760ti will be. The 770 is a nice card though, a 680 on steroids.

I went from a 660 to a 770 and its well worth the extra cash. I know its two different gens in a way, but still. Card is phenomenal. The average 770 hits 1300MHz at stock volts from what i'm seeing in the owners threads. Get it now.

You might want to wait until next week so see what the GTX 760 looks like. You can almost buy 2 for the price of 1 GTX 770 and will get you better performance for 120hz. Im going by rumors of it been a GTX 670 rebadge.

+1 seems 1300mhz is pretty common now with the 770....there is always those bad ones (had one that only did 1241mhz) but at least 80% of the guys in the 770 thread have 1300+

Thanks alot guys for the replies, did help alot.
I will be ordering a GPU from newegg, I have had very good experience with MSI GPU in the past so I think I will go for this one:

Get the EVGA ACX one, or the windforce one. They are both the quiet and best cooling ones.

Plus, EVGA warranty and support is the best.
