I am looking for a new card, I have the worst luck buying used components. New gives me the relief of a warranty.

Yeah, I wouldn't recommend the regular 660. The reason I recommend the 660 Ti is because it's essentially a 670 (has 1344 CUDA cores just like the 670) with slightly toned down memory bandwidth. The regular 660 only has 960 CUDA cores and this impacts performance quite a bit.

I'd recommend you check out ebay. You should have no trouble finding a brand new card for around $200. I personally recommend the ASUS version of the card. The ASUS cooler is absolutely fantastic (keeps the card very cool and is absolutely silent).

It actually looks like the new GTX 760 is faster than the old 660 Ti so you might want to look for a good deal on a GTX 760. It looks like the 760 runs around $250 so you might be able to find one on sale for around $200 (especially considering black Friday is right around the corner).

That seems like my plan, hope for a 760 to come in around $200 or a R9 270x for $200

How are PNY Cards?

I don't have any experience with PNY cards so I can't really say. I've always gone with either EVGA or ASUS and have never had a problem. In my experience, ASUS makes the highest quality parts but I've heard their customer support is absolute garbage so you might want to take that into consideration. EVGA seems to have great customer support.

I would get a 670 off the marketplace here, most if not all 670's should still have warranty left
