Difference between 660 and 660ti Graphic Card

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I would simply like to know the difference between the following cards and what are the benifeits of the superior one out of the two?

Gigabyte nVidia GeForce GTX 660 2GB OC (N660OC-2GD)
Gigabyte nVidia GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB OC (GV-N66TOC-2GD)

As long as the non TI card can be stable enough to play - All COD games, Minecraft (of course it will) and Battelfiled 3 (which I believe it will on good settings) thumb.gif
At a current resolution of 1440x900 biggrin.gif

the ti is more of a gimped 670. it will behave a lot like a 670 on lower resolutions like what you are using. i.e. much faster. Starts to fall apart above 1080p, but you're not doing that.

If you're interested in exactly how many more shaders or whatnot it has, a google of "660 vs 660ti" will probably net a review that goes into it in exhaustive detail.

The differences between 660 and 660ti are minimal at your resolution of 1440x900

The 660ti you linked has a slightly higher boost clock, but its probably a difference of a couple fps.

The 660ti "may" have a better PCB and may support "some" user overclocking; the 660's may not be great clockers either but in terms of component quality; the 660ti is better.

Unless you were doing multi monitor setup; i say opt for the 660. It will be enough to play Battlefield 3 at High Settings; and possibly Ultra Preset at around 55-58fps. It could be lower, multiplayer can be spontaneous so expect some drops if youre playing at Ultra with a single 660. MSAA can be pretty heavy so you can turn it down to 2x MSAA to get better frames.

If you were planning on resolutions higher than 1080p or doing multi monitor id say opt for a 670 or a 760. If not, a 660 will do perfectly fine; no reason to spend the extra for the 660ti (if you plan on keeping it stock)

I totally hear what your saying
Yea I guess the simple 660 can't be too far off a 660ti's perforamnce. YOu can't sli a 660 with a 660ti? I have a660ti in mine at the moment. Figured if I got him the same one, I could have some fun doing some SLI stuff

No has to be 660 - > 660 and 660 ti - > 660 ti.

It is a small difference at your resolution.
