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?
dont buy the msi cards its totally *** and their product sucks i have one it twinfrozer 3 gtx570 and within a week it blue screen and one of the fan not working when i get rma still got issue with dvi port one of them not working totally *** never buy msi product i suggest the other brand asus here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121653
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.
noy just me my other friend also having the problem
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?
^ anybody have any input?
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?
