I know the 660 performed better but what id like to know is which will last longer together. I5 3570 and GTX 650 ti boost. Or i5 3570 with the 660. So basically which graphics card will bottleneck first because I want it to last 5 year at least.

Also I've heard the 650ti boost isn't worth the money as its not strong enough to ultrelize 2GB of memory. Is this true.
Thanks for your help

The card is good, it comes with a 20 dollar rebate, and free games. If you want nvidia the 660ti will suffice fine; it will be a tiny bit slower.

I'll think about it then although I'm actually mainly going to be play the total war games, mabe a few others. The 650 ti boost can run them games on ultra setting anyway can't it.

For reference too if you play total war shogun, keep AA off for that game:

What AA. Sorry if this is a dumb question but I'm new to all this.

Haha, no problem.

AA = Anti-Aliasing. It's a method to get rid of jagged edges in games, and eats up a lot of a cards performance. For a 24 inch monitor at 1080p 2x AA should be all you need. For total war I don't think it will matter to much though.

For example:
