It's almost a year old video, way before Catalyst 12.11 Beta "Never Settle" driver came out.



TPU

And also, this generation NVIDIA has worst or equally bad drivers as AMD so you shouldn't spread outdated information.

Woah there cowboy.. don't kill me yet.. alright.. ''spreading misleading info'' ok man... damn .. correct nicely in the future... damn...

Actually it is. I went from a 1gb EVGA Superclocked GTX 560 to a Evga 2gb Superclocked GTX 660. Got mine for $179 and sold my old gtx 560 for $80 on craigslist. So, $100 bucks for a decent update. Yeah I will take it. Have had my card now for about 3 months and could not be happier. Great performance, much quieter and cheaper then a 760 that has slightly better gains. The 660's are even more of a better deal now. Prices are dropping. I would save some money and go against the 760. Especially if you get the Superclocked or FTW version of a 660. It is stupid to pay a $50-$70 difference for a minimal performance gain with 760. Especially with the 800 series launching next year.

Ummm.... no..?

The 760 is noticeably faster than the 660. It beats the 660Ti almost always, and often is nipping at the heels of the 670. OC it and you've probably got near GTX 680 performance. If you have the extra cash, definitely spend it on the 760.

Also...... 8xx launching next year? Sure, but all three of the 7xx came out within the last 2 months. It would be silly to recommend he wait another year or so. Maybe if you said to wait for AMD's new cards this fall..... thumb.gif
