hey, OK, alright.
so the holidays are coming soon. and well i need a graphics card. I have an
amd a8350 somehow at 3.5ghz.
8gb of ram
and a radion hd 6670 of coarse in crossfire
The two cards I was looking at were the gtx 660ti ftw+ 3gb and the gtx 580, on nvidia's site they say that the faster card (by description) is the 580, but by benchmark the gtx 660ti is better. so im a bit confused? so if could let me know witch card is faster for gaming? i would appreciated it. \
Oh and one last thing! I know i will bottle neck it with my cpu. but i don't care the graphics will be around for next system as well. witch will be better by a long run.
and i cant appologize enuf for the inevitable spelling errors. i cant spell or punctuate for my life. lol
The GTX 660 Ti is a better bet. Much less power consumption and just a much better card overall. Also, I wouldn't bother with the 3GB version. you will gain absolutely no advantage from it unless you have a multi-monitor config so save your money on that and put it towards your future build. Or else get a 7950, its slightly better than the GTX 660 Ti, OCs better and you get a couple of games with it now aswell.
I've a feeling your an Nvidia fan though in which case the GTX 660 Ti is good.
