Probably not, even the GTX 670 is starting to become old and that is about 15-30% faster than 660(non-SLI). Good luck!

performance wise GTX660 will do just fine at 1600x900.

GTX660 is absolutely still worth it, as it hasn't had a replacement (unlike the GTX670 which got EOLed ages ago)
At the right price, it's a great lower-mid range card.

"200 bucks" is a little unspecific though. For $200 USD it's likely you can pick up an R9 270, which is a little better.

I am having the same debate. Between a GTX 660 OC (normally $199 but they have an open box sale of $156) and a GTX 760 (Normally $249). I am certain i won't be doing anything over 1080p on the latest games

But yes I have around 200 USD..I am a fan of nvidia and i know with the consoles already having been out a while yall would know if these was still good cards or not..i wont be able to upgrade until around this time next year and i want to play

Yeah I run a GTX660 and there is absolutely nothing it can't run. On the most demanding games you'll probably need to tweak the high end stuff, but it'll run 1080P pretty comfortably so 1600*900 won't be problematic.

Like I say, at ~$200, the R9 270 is a better buy, but if you can get a GTX660 for nearer to $170 then it's a decent price, and nothing around that price bracket will beat it.

Your alternatives in the sub $200 club are all AMD really (R9 270 if you are lucky, R9 265, HD7850) so if you prefer Nvidia, then a GTX660 is your best option.

Remember that even though it kept it's "600-series" designation, most of the 700-series are recycled cards so it's not really out of date compared to the GTX760/GTX770.

660 will be enough for 900p high-ultra settings and 1080p medium high settings. Lower in some titles.
