So I'm building a new computer and was looking at both of these cards. So I'm having issues in deciding whether I should get a GTX 660 or a GTX 560 Ti.
If I can get a GTX 660 which costs less then I could use the extra $$$ to go towards a better CPU (Not to mention the free copy of AC3 that comes with it ). Though if the GTX 560 Ti proves to be better then the GTX 660 by a huge margin then I don't mind settling with the GTX 560 Ti no matter my current CPU.
So I need some opinions on which one I should get due to the performance between the two.
you really didn't mention your budget or any of your other hardware but even if you were playing at 800x600 I would still tell you to get the 660. I had 2 560's and they both SUCKED! they sucked so bad I never had either one more than a week.
My limit is $900 (it doesn't seem like that but theirs rebates which reduce it to $900) As you can see my CPU isn't so good so I wanted to reduce my graphics card price if I could towards a better CPU. Though if I saw that the GTX 560ti was better then the GTX660 then I wouldn't mind settling with the GTX560ti.
in reality how much would you really gain by buying the "best" cpu ? somebody say the 4100 was junk and you should spend more money to get 5 more FPS that the high end might give you ?... better off with the GPU.
Yeah I had that same reaction when I was setting up the CPU towards games on game-debate.com which is the reason I was trying to get a better one.
My friend is going to build this computer with me so I'll ask him to give your build a look before I checkout. If I'm not able to use your build then I'm going to have to go with your idea to get the GTX 660ti instead, especially since it's only a $10 difference and the 660ti looks better.
