Haswell i5 with Nvidia GTX 660..or Ivy Bridge with 660Ti?

As above.. purely down to budget constraints, do I buy the i5 Haswell 'k' with a Nvidia GTX 660 2GB, or the Ivy Bridge variant with the 660Ti.. I'm not planning to OC, and will be using 8Gb 1600hz RAM.

    gtx 760 + ivybridge i5 (or 660ti if you can't stretch just a little)
  4. +1 ivy bridge
  5. With a dedicated GPU you would be just fine with IB. There is really not much difference in performance between IB and Haswell.
  6. ++1 IB.
    Rozzdog: a few names: Aria, CCL, Dabs, Novatech, Scan, Overclockers, Ebuyer, Pixmania.
    Several of these guys have specials on the 6xx series, with a few sub £200 GTX670s' in the offing.
  7. Thanks guys, for £200 the 760 seems like a no brainer based on all the rave reviews.. Gonna search around for the best deal as I really gotta stick to that budget! Glad I can save a few £££'s by getting a discounted Ivy Bridge.. That'll help!
