I am interested in getting a new graphics card, and my choice is between the new 750 ti and the gtx 660 or anything else in that price range? Which is best, I will be gaming on a 27" 1920x1080 monitor and a 20" 1600x900 monitor as a secondary. I've heard the 750 ti has a small memory bandwidth, does this matter too much? What does it affect? Which is the best card out of those 2 or any other card in the 100-150 price range? Thanks

The GTX 660 is the stronger card but they are close.
The 660 benches at 4113 and the 750ti at 3816 according to passmark:

The 750ti is rated as the best value in terms of performance vs cost at a ratio of 25.44:

So, if you can get your hands on a GTX 660 on sale there's no question as it is the stronger card but if you're just comparing dollars to performance then the 750ti is the way to go. Keep in mind, the 750ti does NOT have sli capability while the 660 does so for future upgradeability if you plan on or like the idea of at least being able to go sli then keep that in mind. You'll have fun with both but for the price difference of less than $20, I say get the 660. I think you'll have more fun both short and long term. Just my 2cents! Hope this helped!

Thanks,

What about the evga 750 ti sc FTW edition, I've seen that gets better performance than the reference 750 ti, I don't think I plan to run 2 cards in SLI in the future, I would probs buy a better card in like a year or 2 years time

If you want to save $50, than get the 750ti. If you can afford the 660, get it. The 750ti is a good entry level card but I would honestly get the 660.

Hi, I have the same question, but in addition to the 750 ti vs 660 ti, what about the r7 265? It's better than the 750 but just under the 660. What's the better choice here?

Now a R7 265 has a performance level between 750ti and 660. We don't know the prices yet but if they are around $150, I would pick that one over the 750ti. The 660 (non ti) still out performs it in most games but not by much. I felt the difference between the 660 and 750ti was significant enough for the $50 premium. But that's just my opinion. The R7 265 may be a good buy particularly when playing BF4.

However, the concern I would have for you is your CPU. I feel that the Q6600 would hold back the R7 265 from it's full capability. The 660GTX has the performance level similar to a 480 GTX, 580 GTX, 7850HD or a 7870HD. I'm rather confident that a Q6600 can support a 480 GTX fully let alone a 580 or a 7870. Considering the R7 265 target performance area is similar to those cards, it would be hard pressed for me to recommend one of those cards unless a CPU upgrade is planned.

Nope sold out the day they were released. Bought out by all the bitcoin miners. When are they going to release more models from different companies?
