I'm having trouble deciding between the 660Ti and the 670.

I think I'd best go for the 660Ti, it has practically the same stats (except for only having a 192-bit memory bus) while it is 100€ cheaper.
There's no way the 670 is better for the money, is it?

A 670 is faster than a 660ti and if it is stock overclocked from factory and you also overclock it, reaches up to par about 8% less than a 680 performance wise. Most after market 670's are build on the 680 PCB too.

really doesnt matter. its your money. i bought a 670 since it wasnt much more than a 660ti (50 bucks)

660ti should satisfy you at 1080p games all maxed out as of now. a 670 is about 10fps faster. it should help with playing games in the future since there is a 10fps headroom space that the 660ti doesnt have. of course you can just overclock it

your call.

you could get the gigabyte 670 and it would perform as well as the msi in terms of cooling. keep in mind though that warranty starts at manufacturing and that gigabyte isnt the best in the customer service department

Yeh I just wouldn't get the 670 MSI PE since its quite expensive for these models. Depends if you want to "future proof" (doesn't really exist) and what card you are coming from, how much you care about the performance you want.

I've read a few reviews on newegg about gigabyte. Didn't see as many as Evga though. So customer service maybe lacks a little there.

I don't get why people claim MSI PE to be "quite expensive for these models" , as after you do the $25 rebate on newegg it is $404.99, $3 cheaper than the EVGA FTW and only $5 over the stock and Gigabyte(which I recommend if you can't do rebate).

If I were just planning to 1080p gaming on a 60hz or IPS monitor 660Ti is a better deal, but I plan to maximize my 27" 120hz monitor and it makes no sense to bottleneck a $600 monitor with a $300 card so I will get the 670PE now and another one next month to SLI.

there isnt as many because all people who get a evga are either attracted to its warranty. they dont care about cooling performance as long as they are getting from evga.

the only reason id get the ftw is when i have a case that has poor airflow. otherwise, id get msi, gigabyte, or asus.

I was saying that because I could get that one too but for that same price I could also get a 7970.

And the warranty for the rest isn't bad. I mean Evga gives you 3 years. So most people will buy extended because they want to be part of the upgrade deal. That is another reason its more popular.

Nobody is talking about MSI 660Ti vs a stock 670 though, they are talking about MSI 670 vs MSI 660 where the gap will be a bit larger than Factory OC vs reference model. As long as you are not looking for 1920X1080 BF3 performance on a 120hz monitor 660Ti PE will give you all you really need.

Also, the only situation where MSI 670 PE cost the same as a 7970 is when you don't do the rebate & your 7970 is stock(not Ghz), non-Ghz 7970 have no advantage over a factory OC 670 and I would take the later 100 times out of 100.

The part about price was directed at selayan. 660Ti looks good to me as well in term of 60Hz/IPS monitor performance.

So did you pick the 660ti MSI PE edition? Let us know how it works out I would be interested in some results based on what you are playing.

I am getting the 670 PE( the reason why I explained above already), it seem like the OP is going to get 660 Ti so you can ask him about the result.

I see, I will need to pick something this week, you might have won me over with MSI since I did have a MSI previously, 560ti.
