GTX 660 Ti -VS- GTX 650 Ti Boost

I am currently shopping around for some parts for my new build. I'm sort of stuck on my choice of graphics cards. I want to be able to play games on high-ultra settings. I have read tons of reviews for the 660 ti and find that it's a substantial choice for just about everyone who likes NVIDIA cards. I don't want to run dual or triple monitors. I just want stable frames. Right now my choice is between EVGA Geforce GTX660 Ti 03G-P4-3663-KR Video Card - 3GB GDDR5 and MSI GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST 2GB GDDR5 I do not necessarily want to buy them from tigerdirect, but just from the huge price range difference I was wondering what kind of performance gain/loss I would be facing for the 125 dollar difference. The brands don't necessarily matter just the 660 Ti vs the 650 Ti with boost.

  1. Sorry I forgot to add that I mainly just play World of Warcraft, Lord of the Rings Online, Star Wars: The Old Republic, League of Legends, and Snipers Elite V2. I would love to try to play Skyrim, BF3 and MW3 but my current build is far too old for any of those.

    Check the price of the 760 where you intend to buy it from, its better than both and tends to be a bit cheaper than the 660ti.

    Also if your system is old you'll need to make sure your CPU is adequate.
  3. The gtx 760 outperforms both those cards, and is less than the 660ti. I recommend MSI's:

  4. okay I really appreciate your inputs, I will keep my eyes open for MSI's version of the 760. My cpu should be adequate once I get my new build slapped together, I'll have the new haswell i5.
  5. Good deal man, hope everything turns out :)
