I was originally planning on getting a 660 ti for my sytem but the prices of the non ti 660 are good. I prefer used as EVGA will still have you covered for 3 years and I can get it cheaper.



non ti 660: $209

660 ti: $263

Should I go for the non ti 660? Huge savings there.

If you can suggest any of these, is there other companies that offer transferable warranties?

It really depends on price, If that's not the issue. Then, you have the choice of going for the ti and the 7970 wiini suggested(What I would go with).

I'd buy this if I was in your position : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... It's slightly AS faster than AS the 660ti and much SLIGHTLY cheaper

Between those 2, I'd grab the non-ti.

fix'd that for you :)

You get a lower amount of cuda cores with the 660 (non ti). Since you are wanting EVGA looks like the 660 (the non ti version). At the price point the ti version is more expensive then it needs to be because the 7950 is at the same price point and it performs better.

Now if you wanted something better then the gtx660 you would notice a larger jump with the 670 which is very close to a 680.

@looniam I see what you did there ;)

I may just go with the EVGA non 660, as you mentioned the price is high for ti version.

But maybe a radeon if i find a cheap one at Amazon.


Now, if in the future, a year or two from now.

Can i buy the same card and pair them together, will this give me a boost in performance later on?

I'm not really knowledgeable in this yet, just build my first PC, and currently using a dedicated graphics.

Also, I got some credit with Amazon so I'd rather purchase there if possible.

This one would be the better buy. It's cheaper and performs on par with the 660ti

660 Ti performs better when overclocked... I'd just go for the GTX 660 (Non-Ti). It costs a LOT Less, and I noticed the Ti had a lower Dip in FPS and in MAX FPS, it had a 1 frame advantage. Imo, the 660 is better than the Ti version, Nvidia messed up with this.

well they messed up pricing wise not with the card itself. The ti should be around 250-260 and the non ti 220-230 range which I think its about there now.

Think I may go with the non ti 660 EVGA superclocked, which is $209 used and 3 year warranty and I have some credit with Amazon.


Would this card be a good choice for the next two years? I'm planning on changing cards every two years. How do you guys foresee the next 2 years, Am I good in that aspect?

Question:

Is it worth it to save a bit for the 670 GTX?

IS a price point for this card at $310 used a good deal?

http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B0083Y6MV6/ref=s...

Is the price difference of a non ti 660 for $209 or a 670 for $310 good?


Like I said, if im planning on upgrading every years, is it worth it?

$310.00 is pretty damn good for a 670. I paid 400 about a month or so ago for a gigabyte oc version of the 670. Makes me curious what the black friday/cyber monday sales will bring.

I would say the jump is worth it and will last you longer then the 660 certainly.

Every year? Go with a 660 (non-ti). Every 3 years, Go with a GTX 670 at minimum. Nothing is future proof, but the 670 should have a decent life span.

Sorry, I meant every 2 years.

Would you still recommend the non ti 660 and pass on the savings, or should I wait and save for a GTX 670.

Every two years I plant to upgrade the card.

Yes! 660 is enough! I've noticed that approximately every 2 years the benchmarks show the the x60 cards are the same performance the the previous year x80 card. Example, the GTX 660 Ti performs almost on par with a GTX 580.

I also think the 660 is enough for 2 years. It was just released and its price/performance is ok. I bought a 660ti knowing it'll last 2 years and then I'll sell it.
