Recently i posted on the forums here and some i got suggestions to buy a gtx 650 ti 2gb boost twin forzr as it would not bottleneck my computer specs.

But where i am from a gtx 660 2gb gigabyte and gtx 650 ti 2gb twin fozr msi edition doesnt have a huge price difference it like $20 so what i would like to know is i can buy the 660 and will the bottlenecks really affect me much and it what ways?
and i might solwly upgrade other parts of my system once i have more cash so considering this should i stick with the 650 ti?

and is the msi 650 ti twin forzr really worth the extra money compared to a gigabyte gtx 650 ti which is about 30 bucks cheaper? cos from reading on froum gigabyte has a pretty good cooling system as well

would really appreciate some help. thanks in advance

my PC SPECS:
WINDOWS 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9400 @ 2.66GHz
3.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 533MHz
Acer EG43M MOBO
1024MB GeForce GT 220
650W/620w (forgot the exact w) PSU coolermaste

Performance is almost the same - if one doesn't get bottlenecked, the other won't either. You're looking at just over 10% framerate difference on average. Small price difference for a small performance difference.
