GTX 660 Ti or 670?

current set up :

ASRock P55 Extreme LGA 1156 I
Intel Core i7-860 Lynnfield 2.8GHz
8 Gigs G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 1600
2x SAPPHIRE Vapor-X Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5


having recently tried playing Saints Row the Third and getting 25-30 fps on medium-ultra settings, i think i'm going to ditch AMD because of the drivers and performance in some of the current games. While it would be nice to continue to have 2 cards, i don't want to update my 500w ps so i'm looking for 1 single card that should last me awhile. I've been out of the graphics card loop for awhile so i haven't really seen/heard much about anything in the past 2 years. I'm looking at either the 660 Ti or 670 as a long term replacement (hopefully 2-4 years if i decided to go SLI)

Price i'd prefer to be under $400.

  1. gtx 670 is better benchmark wise but price to performance ratio the 660ti is better. If you have the money go for the 670 if your on a tight budget for for the 660ti. Also with those high end graphics cards you can get a free game such as borderlands 2 or sleeping dogs or something like that.
  2. I would opt for the 670. I have owned both 660ti and 670 SLI and single card on my recent build and ran benchmarks on all 4 configurations and I can assure you the difference in performance from the 660ti to the 670 is a major gap. spend the extra $100 and get a 670. you won't be sorry :)
  3. This might help you decide TigerDirect has an EVGA GTX 670 on sale for $339 and that includes Borderlands 2.

  4. gaming at 1900 res will be better with the 670. the small memory interface will really start to hurt you there on the lesser card.
  5. Forgot to mention I game at 1900x1200 and will someday get a new monitor and game at 25x16 or something like that
