Im wanting to buy this card to upgrade from my 560 Ti, I dont want to get it off of newegg or anywhere else. I want to get it from a best buy. I cant seem to find it at best buy, the only thing I can find is the 660 Ti which is 350 bucks there. If anyone knows that they sell them there I would very much appreciate it thanks.

Reference model GTX6xx cards are just terrible, Asus and MSI are the safe bets due to much higher build quality. You can still get $100-150 for that 560 Ti on the second hand market.

In additon to above, going from 560ti to 660 isnt much of a performance gain either. dont bother unless youre going 660ti + . And as stated above asus and msi are your best bet.

Not much of a performance gain?

If OP plays games that support PhysX excellently, then OP could use the 560 Ti as a PPU for the 660 and that might be a great performance gain over the 560 Ti alone. Otherwise, I don't think that it's worth it unless OP can sell the 560 Ti for some good money like nforce4max said, $100-150.

Pardon my French. But why in the HELL would you buy it from Best Buy? Do you enjoy getting ripped off?

Get it from newegg or tigerdirect, and save some money man.

Yeah I used to work at best buy and their prices are higher, everything I have ever bought was from newegg, I just built a 1500 computer thats all from newegg. My 560 is pretty much brand new, how much do you think I can get from it ?

Yeah If you absolutely want a GTX 660 NON TI, your best bet is to go ASUS, MSI, or EVGA.
Overclocking abilities on those cards are not great at all, so if you want to overclock I would probably change that idea.


If you change your mind on ordering from newegg then it would be the EVGA SC 1111mhz, ASUS DIRECTCU II, or MSI.
