So I'm looking to build a pc within the next month hopefully and the last component I am yet to decide on is the graphics card. I have decided that I want a GTX 660 but I'm not sure which one of the two cards I want. The EVGA one or the Palit one. The Palit card is £165 on dabs.co.uk which is £11 pounds cheaper than the EVGA one. Is there a big difference between these two cards ???

Thanks, David.

Thanks, I knew the EVGA card was better but I wasn't sure if the extra tenner was worth it :p

evga was the way to go for me. almost every nvidia card i purchased was evga. unfortunately they did away with the lifetime warranty so I found no need to stick with them. I would never buy another palit card as long as I live. I would buy a gigabyte card or a galaxy card. think they are the 2 coolest running for the money. And have had zero problems with either.

Would you consider the MSI card to be better than the EVGA card?


Yes, better components, runs cooler, quitier.... worth going that extra £5.....

Palit cards are fine, so are EVGA (I have 2), but all things considered MSI are the ones to go for....

Right thanks guys, you've been a good help. I should be ordering parts in roughly 2-3 weeks :)

Hate to bump old topics but my budget is going to be pretty tight I think. So I'm trying so save as much money as I can wherever I can. How big is the frame rate difference between the Palit card and EVGA card? If it's only a couple of frames then I'll just go with the Palit but if it's 5+ then EVGA it is.

The only thing that will make a difference in fps is if it is a factory overclocked card...

Shouldnt make much of a difference though as any of those cards will be able to achieve a typical factory oc anyway.
