Just a quick question, which one do you think I should purchase?

I'm not a hardcore gamer, but would like to be able to play most new games at high settings without any problems. The GeForce GTX 560 Ti is on sale right now and if it's a good enough graphics card, I think I'd go for that instead.

Thanks in advance!

The 660ti is a better card and you also get Assassins Creed 3 with it. It is also a lot more expensive. It is up to you and depends on your budget. The 560 is a strong card though and can handle most games on high settings at 1080p, what is your resolution by the way.

Thanks! And by resolution, are you talking about the monitor?

I'm planning on getting this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

And apparently the Video Card comes with DUKE NUKEM, but I would much rather prefer Assassin's Creed III.

That monitor should default to 1080p. Either card would work for now but you'd be set with the 660ti for quite awhile and the 560ti might start showing it's age in a year or so.

I'd go with the 660ti if I could afford it.

So don't take into consideration the price? I can afford the higher-end video cards, but I'm not a hardcore gamer and only play around 1-2 hours a day. Also, is 320-bit good for a video card?

If you really aren't into video cards then the 670 will last you for years. You can set it and forget it.

If you take into consideration your last thread:

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/371593-31-build

and if that is going to be your build "I" would go with the gtx670 and fork out the extra cash I play bf3 and skyrim and wish I had forked out and got the 670 instead of the 7870 which still is a great card, but not as good as the 670. However, I like to max out my settings, if you don't mind going on lower settings in the nearer future I believe the 660ti would be a better choice, but if you want to last a bit longer, the 670 at 330 is not a bad deal.
