Hi, what do you think about this GPU?

Asus GeForce GTX660 TI-DC2-2GD5 Nvidia Graphics Card (2GB, GDDR5, HDMI, DVI-I, DVI-D, Display Port, OpenGL 4.2, DirectX 11, Nvidia 3D Vision Surround Ready, PCI-Express 3.0)

is it good? or should I buy another one?

It is good. What is your budget and can you list the components for the rest of the build?

I'd probably op for a 7950 unless you have brand preference. The 7950 is now faster than the 660 ti and almost as powerful as the 670.

sure, my maximum budget is about $250-$300

motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4
CPU: 3d generation i5 3570K
RAM: Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B
HDD: Western Digital 1TB internal Hard Drive - Caviar Blue (3.5 inch)

I dont think the other comp. are revelant

I would buy one of the new 760's.
I just spent a lot of time looking at all the different 660's, the ASUS one is the fastest, but the MSI ones are cooler and make less noise. I guess the ASUS cards don't cool the VRAM as well either, which isn't important unless you want to do some serious OCing.

depending on prices you can find both of the hd 7870 tahiti LE chips and the new gtx 760 may be better buys for you

I received my tahiti LE for right at $205 a couple months ago and it is by far and away a performance beast at that price. moving torwards the $250 range I would go for the new gtx 760. These two cards i mentioned are at the top of what 1080p can demand and will be good cards till we move onto 120Hz monitors and or 1440p screens.

yeah probably ill get that one, but it is hard to find a GTX 760 that they can ship to where I live, but ive found this one that they say its quite good:

EVGA GF GTX 660Ti 2GB GDDR5 Graphics Card

what do you think?

while I believe that EVGA is the the best manufacturer out there i still think it would be better to just wait a week or two till the gtx 760 ships to where you are. the gtx 760 has only been out a week or so and may take a little while to ship world wide. that 660ti is good but its price to performance is a little weak.
