I was thinking of buying a ASUS GeForce GTX 660 Ti DirectCU II but IDK what is the best for FPS Games and etc. is it the TOP Edition or the OC Edition well i just read about their informations, and IDK what does engine clock and shader clock means because TOP has the shader clock but OC has the engine clock so what are their differences?

TOP Edition:

They're both the same, except the second one is overclocked.

I don't think it'll impact your game much with a factory OC really.


So if the first one is cheapest, get that. Then you can OC later on your own if you want.


OC also requires more cooling. So it can depend on how your rig is set up.

Actually, they are both overclocked.

The OC version has a mild overclock and the TOP version has a higher overclock. They supposedly use cherry picked chips for the TOP versions that can clock higher.

Essentially the board and the cooling are the same.

well i was asking about the difference of the engine clock in the OC edition and the shader clock in the TOP Edition? and what is much more expensive the TOP or the OC one?

Engine clock/shader clock on asus site is the same thing, not sure why they have worded it different.

The TOP is the better card, but both are good.
