    If you don't have £10 more then get,

    Thanks for the reply but the links don't work :( can you tell me the cpu's?

    as it is faster than the 650ti non-boost edition :)
  3. Not sure why the hell they're not working, keep trying to replace them/edit them and its not working. Just head on over to www.scan.co.uk and its the GTX 650Ti BOOST for same amount of money and the GTX 660 for £10 more.

    Cheers! found this bargain! 650 ti boost for less than just the ti :) ! http://www.ebuyer.com/493593-msi-gtx-650-ti-boost-oc-edition-2gb-gddr5-dual-dvi-hdmi-displayport-pci-e-graphics-card-n650ti-tf-2gd5-oc-be
  5. The one I linked was cheaper but whatever you pref. Can you not stretch to the 660? £147?

    I have found the 660 but it is the oc edition? Also is the 660 alot better than the ti boost?

    Yes that card is OC. Significantly enough to warrant the extra £10, take a look: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/782?vs=783
