Asus Gtx 650Ti Boost Direct CUII 2 GB vs Galaxy Nvidia 660 2 GB
So, which is better?
I will be playing on a 1280 x 1024 monitor until maxwell launches when i upgrade to atleast a 30" display and atleast a GTX 870 and will use the one i get now as a dedicated physx card?
So, which is better?

The 660 is better, but if you are playing at 1280x1024 it will be more than you need. What is the price difference?

I dont have Evga as a choice. Is there one with the Asus GTX 650Ti Boost Direct CuII 2 GB and the Galaxy GTX 660. I am preferring the asus but now what matters is what will work better as a dedicated physx card afterwards.

Oh yeah, and i forgot to mention the psu. Its a Tx 750M.
Also, was Tomshardware down about 5 mins after i posted this thread. Got a currently unavailable error when i refreshed the page and hence the cause for my late reply(but not so late).

If you are just going to use the gpu for your present resolution, the 650ti will ork great, there will be more stress on your cpu as apposed to the gpu.
So you could save the 28 bucks.
I prefer Asus as well.
The 660 is a stronger card, but not at that resolution.
It really depends on what you intend to do.

Well, i will use the card i get till the maxwell or maxwell refresh arrives.
This is how i am going to upgrade-
GPU-Monitor-Keyboard and mouse- Speakers- Headphones- GPU
So, it may take uptil the 900 series arrives for my next gpu upgrade. Also, whatever gpu i get now will be used as a dedicated physx card later so would the GTX 650 Ti Boost be sufficient for 1 yr at that res and a yr at a little higher res. I am planning to get at 1600p monitor but will probably have to run most games at low settings if i want to run games at 1600p.
Well, if it can work at 1280x1024 at high for 1 yr and at 1600p for the next 1 yr at low settings(just run the game), then i will get the gtx 650ti boost.
Also, is this plan better-
GPU-Monitor-GPU-Keyboard and Mouse-Speakers-Headphones

What if i get a Msi GTW 660, then what would you guys choose. Theres a 2$ diff between it and the galaxy but the gap with the asus gtx 650ti boost is 30$ but if i choose the Zotac Gtx 650 ti boort then, theres a 45$ diff between it and the MSI. So, what should i get? Will be ordering withing the next 24 hrs.

It is just a benchmark showing you the performance difference. Very little between an OC 650Ti boost and 660. Either will work fine but out of the cards listed the MSI 660 I would get over the Galaxy.

But, what would be better for using as a dedicated physx card afterwards?
Highly Oc'ed GTX 650 Ti Boost is better than stock GTX 660. So, if i oc a gtx 660, it will get much better performance.
So? Should i just get the asus 650ti boost and call it a day?

Either will handle PhysX fine so since temporary card why not go with the cheapest. The Asus sounds like a plan.

Yea, but this temporary card has to last atleast 6 months at 1600p
