looking for a card for gaming. i know the 760 is about 50 dollars more but is it worth it over the 660ti? or what would be a better option at the 250 price point. kinda want nvidia but if there's something significantly better on the amd side i may consider it

More about : gtx 660 760

i would say the 760 is worth it, and is the best card at this price point, its abit better in terms of performence, but you also have to understand that its not all about performence, the 760 is one gen ahead, meaning it uses newer,better technology in terms of TDP, cuda cores( less microstutter), and in some other ways.

defeintly go for the 760.

depends on if you have to run games at absolutely HIGHest settings, or you can even go down to meduim settings.

dont worry, its a strong card.

The GTX 660 Ti is going to cost anywhere from $25 less to exactly the same as the GTX 760. You would probably only get the GTX 660 Ti if it was a nice custom model and considerably less expensive.

For example, the Asus GTX 660 Ti DirectCU OC for $225 after rebate might be a consideration.

How so? It's an OC 660 non TI so how is that newer and better?

Definitely go for one of the good custom models, they're only $10 more than the reference models.
Enjoy that free copy of Splinter Cell Blacklist too. The preview videos look pretty cool.
