Help Choosing the right GTX 660!

Okay let's get this out of the way first. I have to get it at Best Buy; I am sitting on $300 of rewards certificates (read "free money").

Here is my build (this build will not be changing, already paid for):

GIGABYTE GA-Z77-D3H Intel Z77 Chipset DDR3 ATX Mainboard
Intel® Core™ i5-3570 3.40 GHz 6MB Intel Smart Cache LGA1155
8GB (4GBx2) DDR3 1866MHz Corsair Vengeance
Corsair CMPSU-600CXV2 Builder Series CX600 V2 80 Plus Certified

Shooting for 1920x1080 on a single display. Would like to try Skyrim eventually, maybe some shooters at some point.

This mobo is crossfire ready, but I doubt I will ever do Xfire or SLI...but nice to know I can at some point. I have been using ATI/AMD forever, want to try something new with Nvidia. The GTX 660's on Best Buy's website are in my price range but there are 4 to choose from.

I narrowed it down to 3...I am not against going back to AMD if one of those is a better option. For instance, are there two cheap AMD's (remember, from Best Buy) that I could run to get better performance than a single 660?

Get the 660ti! It will be faster than both of those cards.

I thought that might be the best option. The dual fans/extra ram on the others were leading me to believe otherwise. But the extra cores on the Ti can't be beat I suppose. Thanks.

No way, just no way.

The value of GTX 660 ti isn't very good.

You should go for GTX 660, it's like 75% of the Price of the GTX 660 ti and it's only about 10% slower.
