Considering I've been looking heavily into Video Card technology and how they differ in comparison one thing I was wondering is with the 660ti it has a 192 memory interface (think that is what it is called.) and the 670 has a 256. What does that translate to exactly besides a few fps? And on that note the 680 has a 256 interface as well. Is there a link someone could provide, or an explanation on how all these compare or what it means?

Basically it means that it won't be able to handle higher resolutions as well as the GTX 670 because of the reduced bandwidth.

Because of the 25% reduction in bandwidth, a stock GTX 660 ti performs between 10-20% worse than the GTX 670 in games. (although a overclock can result in it performing just as well as a stock GTX 670)

So far what I've gathered then is on a single monitor 1080p the 680 is overkill, but the 670 is feasible albeit kind of a waste. With that in mind what is the difference between a standard model and a FTW (For the win edition)?
