More about upgrading
  1. I would suggest going with a 660 over a 560 ti because you will get a performance increase over the 560 ti AND the 570 for the same price. Not to mention if you are running a PCIe 2.0X16 slot with your current motherboard the 660 is backwards compatible and will run in that motherboard, and you will not see a difference in performance even though it is a PCIe 3.0X16 card.

    Also... I hate laning against mordekaiser -_-
  2. That's the one I would suggest as well. O.o

    Nice card +1 and i agree over the 560
  4. wow everyone already suggested the 660 nice well here goes i think u should get the 660
  5. I would also suggest zotac 660 amp edition which will give you awesome results or some other factory overclocked version
  6. 660ti.

    its miles ahead of a regular 660 and oc it comes close to 670 performance. and in the future you can just stick another one of these bad boys and sli it.
  7. Or you can get a HD 7870 which is better than all of the cards mentioned above even the GTX 660.

    This is by far the best card in that price range.
  8. And this 660 is in my price range? I think it is sorry for posting. Also should I save more money and just get the 660ti instead?

    Haha who doesn't if your looking at my OC specs I'm upgrading everything
  10. you know people like me who buy mid-range cards found 660 (non and ti) a little joky compared to 7870 and 7950 i am not saying 660 is a bad card but you could get more from 7870 and up
  11. http://www.hwcompare.com/12502/geforce-gtx-670-vs-radeon-hd-7870/
    I always suggest NVIDIA cards over ATI for 2 reasons. In the same price range you will get not a noticeable difference in frame rates between ATI equivalents. That AND NVIDIA owns the only cards that support physx processing. So if you wanna play batman arkam asylum or BL2 at its true high quality you need to have an NVIDIA card.
  12. I would save the money and get the 660 ti if possible.

    If you can stretch this is a keeper and a great overclocker

    If not, the EVGA 660 is good too
