I would go with the Evga 660Ti since it has 3gb and will be good for the higher resolutions if you get a monitor that has a resolution higher the 1920x1080. Plus I like haveing more video ram just for the sake of it being there if ever needed. There's nothing worse then needing it and not having it when you could have bought it in the first place. If the price is similar then it's a no-brainer.

Why are people suggesting the 3GB EVGA when there is no benefit? Get the overclocking beast, MSI PE, and be happy.

Let me ask, do people that buy a 670 buy a 2GB or 3GB? 2GB, cuz it's all you need at 1080p and is a beast.

on second thought, definitely get the msi power edition, if anything goes wrong they have good warranty, it shouldnt break though, i havent heard of any people having problems.

Let him choose all of us acts like if we playing the game for him. If he wants a 660 Ti let him get it..I bought the 660 Ti as well before the 660 even came out and i dont regret it "Im" the one thats enjoying my games not anyone else. I see this alot to where people do card vs card and benchmarks start coming out then it becomes a debate with subjective answers from canned benchmarks or someone asks about a card and other cards is mentioned when they didnt even want that brand and some trys to sling a card down someones throat..He asked about 660 Ti not 660 non ti. Aslo to the op if thats the card you want by all means go for it you wont regret it..My opinion when it comes to graphic cards its to subjective

MSI is being sneaky. They have developed a good reputation as a card manufacturer and I don't think
this will hurt them much at all. Of all the 660Ti cards, MSI PE seems to perform the best; although we
don't know about how that card will be in a year.

I've used mine for 2 months and it's been great so far.

But will it hit my performance? And do they have a 3 gb model?

they do not have a 3gb version, but its not a big deal unless you need to use 3 monitors for gaming at once. the evga does not have a problem and neither does the msi. i would get the msi, you can overclock it more and it will run cooler

What about crysis 2 on ultra settings...3GB would be needed then

Hey guys, I was also looking at the 2 gb Gigabyte GV N670OC-2GD Graphics card, and I was wondering if it is worth it because the 660ti performs like the 670 when over clocked, but the 670 performs like a 680 when over clocked.

For 1080p, 660ti oi enough for almost all games at high settings. 670 is best for higher , like 1200p. I'd love a 670 but I don't think its worth benefit for my games at 1080p.

I love to play at 1080p, but I would like to turn on physx and all of those other settings for improved gameplay. So I don't think I will play at mate than 1080p but I might need power for extra features

The Gigabyte 670 is $380 (after rebate) and the MSI 660ti is $275 (after rebate).
Is the the 670 worth an extra $105, which is 38% more expensive? Or would you rather spend $275 now
and upgrade in 2 years without guilt? It's up to you.

Dude, you are so right, but will the 660ti be able to handle physx, adaptive vsync and all of those other good stuff while staying at 1080p with about 60fps??

I see your point. I'd look for gpu reviews using borderlands 2. maybe to early to tell.

I'm mainly a BF3 guy. I tried metro 2033, and wasn't interested in the game style. Batman Arkham city was better. Also, I gave Skyrim a try, but hated constantly running around looking for stuff. So for me, physx isn't important cuz the games that utilize it aren't for me.

this is the performance of the 660 ti on the most physx intensive game borderlands 2

Yep,moreover the msi 660 ti pe/oc is available on newegg for $275 only after MIR.That's an excellent bang for the buck if pitched against those stock hd 7950 cards retailing for $300 with which this card trades blows.

Games that rely on raw graphics performance like metro 2033 would run much better on the gtx 670 if you can pay the extra $100.However I won't support paying only $15 more and buying a stock hd 7950 just because it has 384-bit bus and sacrificing exclusive graphical features like physx and that too when both cards perform equally. ;)

A gtx 670 is very close to a gtx 680 in performance so its not a big deal that it can be overclocked to run like a 680.Just like a 660 ti can be overclocked to run like 670 and vice versa.
I've bought a gtx 660 ti power edition oc and when overclocked it further to 1100mhz/1777mhz it was performing faster than a gtx 670 in games and generated better 3dmark scores also.
Even without the overclock I get to play almost all games on max settings with 60fps @ 1080p.Witcher 2,metro 2033,sleeping dogs and crysis 3 being the only exceptions.Overclocking pushes me over 30 fps on witcher 2,the only game where I get below 30 fps.

how does it perform with physx?

I like how whenever people say that a 670 can o/c to a 680, they always leave out that a 680 can be o/c'd as well. Let's be honest, an o/c'd 670 will not touch an o/c'd 680. Price having nothing to do with it, some people have the money.

lol @rocksmasher I never said a 680 is crap or people should buy a 670 and oc it.Overclocking gives performance boost at no cost and in all higher end cards, the oc ability is roughly the same.
EDIT: People should buy what they can afford as also having a well-balanced build and what suits their needs.

so an overclocked 660ti is basically the biggest bang for the buck?
