Time for a new GPU. I'm looking at the GTX 660 Ti.

The card I was planning on buying, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121658 ASUS GeForce GTX 660 Ti DirectCU II TOP , is out of stock.

Anybody know anything about the EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti FTW Signature2 2GB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I can't find any reviews for this card, it's similarly clocked to the ASUS GTX 660 Ti DirectCU II TOP, anything architecturally different that would make one card better than the other?

Also, how much of a difference is there with the ASUS GTX 660 Ti DirectCU II TOP model vs the ASUS GeForce GTX 660 Ti DirectCU II OC, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... other than clock speed? I'd much rather go with an ASUS alternative over EVGA.

With that said any other 660 Ti's I should be considering?

I'm really just trying to decide if it's worth waiting till the TOP is back in stock, as it's unclear when that might happen.

I would definitely wait for the TOP. I've heard that EVGA has the best warranty so if your looking for the best warranty instead, go for EVGA. But if your not looking at that, You should go with the ASUS TOP. Best cooler and more quiet card.

Regarding the OC version of ASUS, its quite of a difference, mainly in the clock speed. I would still wait for the TOP if your willing to wait, but if not, then you would have a lot of choice like the said ASUS GTX 660 Ti OC, MSI GTX 660 Ti PE. If you'll ask me between the OC model of asus and the MSI PE, I'll go with MSI PE, It should nearly match the TOP version of Asus.

Oh okay well good just checking. I agree with what the adm said. ASUS isn't a horrible company to deal with customer service wise but you have to ask yourself a question. What is more important to you the customer service really fast turn around on RMA's or the better performance/cooling overall. It takes about a week or so from what I've seen for people to mail in there cards and get something back which is normally 2-3 weeks for most other companies. On the other hand the ASUS coolers are very quiet and very cool and honestly the only real huge difference with the TOP editions from ASUS is the larger overclock from them.

BF3 @ 1900 x 1080 and ULTRA settings hitting 50-80 fps.... sound good to you? :)

While I agree that EVGA is good you would get that performance from either company

The TOP just came back in stock at Newegg sooner than I expected. So I'm going with that. Thanks for all the feedback.
