GTX 660 SLI or GTX 760 - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Hey OP, this is the performance difference you should expect with single 770, vs dual 660's, vs dual 770's (all benchmarks were performed on my system, and the GPU's were all OC'ed to their max stable clock speeds). Personally, i would go with a single 770 now, and get another one later if i were in your position. I used to have dual 660's, and i got those as opposed to a single 680. At that time period, i strongly believed that the 680 @ 499$ was way too overpriced as opposed to dual 660's @ 399$.

The price/performance was not worth it at all, until they released the 770, which is faster than the 680, and also at the price the 670 used to be, and now it's even better at 299$, so it would not be that big of a deal to save up and get another one when you need the extra performance. If you don't mind turning down settings in some graphically intensive games, then you can go with another 660 and save you some cash, but if you want to future proof your system, get the 770, you won't regret it in the long run.

Also would I be affected with certain resolutions with an SLI 660's at 192-bit, I want to run high setting if its possible. Will a 256-bit handle higher setting smoother, or will the 192-bit 660's do just fine in SLI.. I'm going to be playing games like battlefield, batman, and a few other online games coming out, also a little bit of video editing too.

SLI doubles the memory bandwidth so effectively you'll have 384bit with 2 660s.

You'll be able to max out most settings at 1080p in both battlefield and batman and won't have a framerate issue.

look at Yungbenny911's reply... Fireestrike on the 660 SLI are indeed faster than the single 770 smile.gif

Don't think SLI will help fore video editing. I think more CPU cores helps video editing.

As far as Tiger Direct, I bought a EVGA 660 TI (for my x51) from TigerDirect close to my house and was eventually get my Resident Evil game code after the store manager looked into it. I bought a MSI 760 GTX that was supposed to come with a Batman game from a different store (the main store on Flagler street) and I basically gave up after getting the run-around for 2 weeks. I suspect that TD employees are selling the codes online somewhere.

Sweet, well I think I might just go ahead and get the 770 or 760, I'll let you guys know which one I go for.. It's going in a water cooled setup, I don't have a GPU block yet but will probably get one in the next few months.
