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 -_-

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.

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?

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

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.

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

If not, the EVGA 660 is good too



If hes looking to spend now 660 if hes willing to save 660 Ti
