I was wondering if the better deal would be a GTX 670 for $319 or a GTX 660Ti for $239. Anyone care to comment?

More about : 660ti 670

IF you can pay 319$ then the obvious choice will be the 670 gtx...

That is after a rebate but that is still money back.

The GTX 660 Ti at that price would technically have somewhat better performance for the money if we go strictly by price of the cards and their performance alone (that is not counting the rest of the system's price and performance impact), but it would still be a slower card (whether or not you'd see the difference with whatever system you have isn't something that I can even guess at accurately with what little info you have provided).

That depends on how the rebate is paid. Some don't pay in real money, but instead in gift cards and such.

Well if you play at 1080p and you have a i5 sandybridge/ivy or a amd fx xxxx then the 670 gtx will be the obvious choice at that price, the price of the most cheapest 670 gtx are at 349.99$.
But the 660 gtx ti at 239 is also at a good price, most that i'd seen are at 250$

So you dont want to play games ?
If so go with the 660 ti gtx it has the same cuda cores as the 670 gtx.

OP, if you don't play games, then you'd have to check and make sure that the software you use is run better on Kepler, Fermi, or AMD's GCN or else you may be taking a down-grade if you already have a decent Fermi card. For example, in dual-precision CUDA work, the GTX 570 beats the GTX 680 and beats the GTX 660 Ti and 670 to even greater margins. Even the GTX 560 Ti beats the 670 and 660 Ti in such work. The opposite is true for single-precision GPU acceleration with Kepler cards having the advantage. If your software can use OpenCL and/or Direct compute, then chances are that AMD's Radeon 7950 will beat all Nvidia cards in your budget by huge margins while being a little cheaper than the 670.

660=192 bit bus :(

AMD has issues with my software and also my computer. So Nvidia is where I want to go. I am using Sony Vegas Pro and some adobe After Effects. What would be my best Nvidia card. Sony or Adobe don't really say for sure what works best. They say to go buy one and try it and see what works best at Sony. I need to talk to someone that has experienced it.

Sorry, I'm not experienced enough with it to make a recommendation either way, just to bring up the subject in that it needs to be addressed before a proper recommendation can be made. I'm much more experienced with gaming performance as far as graphics cards are concerned and can make excellent recommendations there.
