    Honestly for that price you should be looking at a sapphire 7950.


    Out of the 2 you have given, the 660 ti is about 8% faster at stock with better power consumption, but has crappy overclocking potential and is neutered bandwith wise.

    The gtx 580 can overclock better, but uses more power, it would depend on what manufacturer and it's cooling solution.
  2. none, I'd say get the ATI 7950 as its cheaper, and slightly better than both via price point.

    But to answer your question..The 580 and 660ti are quite similar, they trade blows on the benchmark, but I'd say the 660ti is the better value. It's nearly 44 percent more energy efficient, cheaper new, with slightly better performance give or take. So 660ti
