    with your setup, yes you would see a great difference. Depending on the game it can be as much as 50% increase. That percentage will vary from game to game, so I would say average of 30-40% better. Plus the added benefit of 2gb + vram will serve well on a nice monitor. With your 2600, you will have nice FPS with a 660ti. It will play most games at 1080p on high/max settings with the exceptions maybe being FC3, BF4, Crysis 3, which will be more demanding. Still if your struggling after that, you could pop in another 660ti, SLI them, and have an awesome rig.
  3. The Asus 660 ti http://amzn.to/122sa0q would be a great choice!

    power supply is a moot point. The 660ti draws less power than the 560ti!

    you worry about yourself..............
  6. Sell your card & get a GTX770 - $100 more but you will smile.

    Believe me Stark, you don't need to worry about your PSU as Swifty has eluded to.

    The 660ti draws less power than your current 560ti, so PSU does not come into play.

    That GPU with your system will be a nice setup.
  10. I don't always like to use the whole budget but this is one of my picks, maybe a little overkill to some extent, but I'd prefer it over the 660ti and it's 192bit memory interface.
