A friend of mine wants to buy the same that I have, thats GTX 660 but he wants to confirm which is the best available here in India at reasonable price.

As I have the MSI one, I said him to buy that but he (& me too) wants to know what does 2GD5/OC means in the MSI GTX 660 ?
I have heard & seen the benchmarks that MSI GTX 660 TF III OC is better than the GTX 660 Ti stock.


I suggested him these, So tell me which is the best among these :-

MSI NVIDIA N660 TF 2GD5/OC 2 GB GDDR5 Graphics Card

o.k. so the MSI N660 TF 2GD5 OC (or N660 Twin Frozr 2GD5 OC). This video card uses the new GK106 GPU along with MSI Twin Frozr III GPU cooler and a custom PCB design. And is factory overclocked.The OC stands for overclocked MSI is using four Samsung GDDR5 memory chips.The MSI GeForce GTX 660 OC video card uses 2048MB (2GB) of Samsung GDDR5 memory. The exact part number is K4G20325FD-FC03. According to the Samsung website these specific IC's are rated to run at 6.0Gbps (0.3ns) at 1.55V.

My PC handles every game like butter on floor. (Well who puts butter on floor?)

Thats why I've told him to buy 660 but you know their is 7870 in the competition.
GTX 660 and HD 7870 costs almost same. But in India 7870 is even costly than the GTX 660 Ti and is in the range of GTX 670.

3 Months ago 7870 Flex Edition cost same as GTX 660 but now its in the range of GTX 660 Ti.

So do you think GTX 660 is worth spending money? AMD will have new drivers released anytime now (Mainly for Far Cry 3, Hitman 5) and Nvidia have already released new Drivers. But still AMD beats Nvidia! So do you think Nvidia will counter-attack or its good to get a better radeon Card?

If the HD 7870 is more expensive than a GTX 660 ti, go for the GTX 660 then.

But if you can find it at the same price as a GTX 660 (plus or minus Rs. 1000), then buy the HD 7870

It seems to me it's a good buy sure 7870 is a good buy as well NV and AMD play cat and mouse they take turns out preforming one another.I am honestly specious if they plan things ahead of time.It's possible you never know.It may be i am just crazy lol !I don't know.I would say either way both are good buys so get which ever is cheaper.
