Hello people, i am going to build a computer soon and i have chosen the GTX 660 2GB for my graphics card, but i have noticed that it has a 192-bit memory bus compared to other cards that usually have 256-bit memory buses, will this limit the card's performance?

Thanks in advance.

In the future yes. But as is right now no. As games' engines get more complex the bus will bottleneck it sadly.

its bottleneck is not as worse as that of gtx 660ti.......its memory bandwidth is 144gb/s which is enough.......until it runs out of its memory bandwidth problems its likely that it runs out of its power

Let me add that it will only limit it on higher resolutions (2560x1600+) and with very heavy anti aliasing. Nothing else would be limited just because of the memory bus: not now, not in the future.

Yes. I forgot about that. I think of my setup when I reply sometimes.

I will be playing on 1920x1080 resolution and i will use very little to none anti aliasing, will the card be fine with my setup? Also, will a i5-3470 bottleneck a GTX 660? because that's the processor i'm going to use for my new gaming pc.

It will be fine and it will run great. There will be no bottlenecks.
