Sadly, my friend doesn't seem to be getting rid of his 680..
So, the question is, which video card should I get?
I was going to get the 660TI, for amazing performance..
But then I saw the 650TI is only 170 dollars, and apparently runs really good.
I currently have a GTX 560 1GB non-ti.
Yeah, I have a 560 NON-TI I and my cuda cores are less than 300.
Even then, on max settings I get decent FPS on far cry and AC3.. like 30. But it dips low to 15 sometimes. I don't like this.
I lower the settings and it still doesn't give me what I want.
The GTX 660 has many cuda cores, 2GB ram, and high clocks.
The galaxy one you linked me should be good right?
I usually get EVGA products, but this seems pretty solid from reviews.
What I want is just to blow games away. ;]
So if it's the best bang for 200~ I'm getting it now.
The 660 series are way too overpriced (sorry I gave wrong reason). For example, the GTX 660 is more powerfull than the HD 7850, but the much better performing HD 7870 is only 10 bucks more. The GTX 660ti is better than the HD 7870, but is roughly the same price as the better performing HD 7950
Even with those drivers the performance difference between the 7870 and 660 gtx was 3%, but now nvidia has a new driver that boost overall performance (310.64 beta driver) and has exclusive features like physX, txaa, adaptive vsync, etc and it's more cheaper.
