Just had a quick question for you guys. I was originally meaning to get the MSI Power edition of the 660 ti off of tigerdirect, but I was at best buy this morning and they have an Nvidia branded 660 ti for $350. I've never seen an Nvidia branded card before, I thought they sell their cards through other brands only (MSI, EVGA, PNY, etc.) Which would be the better card to get?

Here's the link to the Nvidia 660 ti:;jsessionid=280D3C64D1A0564F49EFBF7D99E238B2.bbolsp-app01-02?id=1218720725742&skuId=6208848&st=660%20ti&cp=1&lp=1

It's a reference card with reference cooling and no overclocking. And it's certainly overpriced. Get the MSI!

I'm sorry to hear you've got a faulty product monu, but it happens with all manufacturers. MSI is a pretty good brand, I wouldn't attack them because of single bad experience.

I dunno my MSI GTX 560 works just fine, been over a month now. And anyway, their coolers are pretty good.

@OP: don't buy the reference. check out anandtech's 660 Ti review, they tested a few other models as well.

What about the PNY version? How does that fare against the other two?

It's ok.

well seeing as I have a best buy trade in card with $100 on it, Best Buy is the place I'm going to buy this card from. I'm a bit dissapointed in what you've said, but I need to go with either the PNY or the reference. Which would you suggest?

PNY. You should never go with reference ones.
