It should run fine. I'm currently running a GTX 670 on my Core i7 920. I have no problems playing games at 1080p. What screen resolution are you running (assuming you use for gaming?)

    The GIGABYTE GTX 660ti OC (GV-N66TOC-2GD) doesn't overclock as high as some others but does stay quieter even OCed. Im not sure which part of your question performance and quiet you held in higher regard so I thought a counter post to sheer performance was needed.

    Well personally i think the 670 is best my logic behind this is a 680 is roughly only 7% better than a 670 yet it cost $100 more i don't think that little of a performance gain is worth a extra hundred dollars!You can't expect the 660 ti to be better than a 670/680 overall this is just my personal thoughts on the subject.According to the professional reliable reviews it differs i find this one to be truthful and not flawed Quote:
    " Bringing the review to a close, it should come as no surprise that the launch of the GTX 660 Ti has ended up being a lot like the launches before it. Yet at the same time it’s not truly identical, as there’s a lot going on that makes it nothing like the launches before it.

    Distilled to its essence, the GTX 660 Ti is yet another fine addition to the GTX 600 series thanks to the GK104 GPU. Compared to the GTX 670 it’s a bit slower, a lot cheaper, and still brutally efficient. For buyers who have wanted to pick up a Kepler card but have found the high-end GTX 670 and GTX 680 out of their price range, at $300 the GTX 660 Ti is at a much more approachable point on the price-performance curve, offering about 88% of the GTX 670’s performance for 75% of the price. Given the price of Kepler cards so far this is definitely a better deal, though it’s still by no means cheap. So in that respect the launch of the GTX 660 Ti is quite a lot like the launches before it.

    What’s different about this launch compared to the launches before it is that AMD was finally prepared; this isn’t going to be another NVIDIA blow-out. While the GTX 680 marginalized the Radeon HD 7970 virtually overnight, and then the GTX 670 did the same thing to the Radeon HD 7950, the same will not be happening to AMD with the GTX 660 Ti. AMD has already bracketed the GTX 660 Ti by positioning the 7870 below it and the 7950 above it, putting them in a good position to fend off NVIDIA.As it stands, AMD’s position correctly reflects their performance; the GTX 660 Ti is a solid and relatively consistent 10-15% faster than the 7870, while the 7950 is anywhere between a bit faster to a bit slower depending on what benchmarks you favor. Of course when talking about the 7950 the “anything but equal” maxim still applies here, if not more so than with the GTX 670. The GTX 660 Ti is anywhere 50% ahead of the 7950 and 25% behind it, and everywhere in between."
