GTX 650Ti or GTX 660?

Hey!

I'm currently upgrading from my Radeon 4350, as I'm getting into serious gaming and I need a real graphics card. I will be running games like Battlefield 3, CS:GO, AC3, and other intensive games. I am looking at getting a GTX 600 model card, and I'm stuck between the 650Ti (~$140) and the 660 (~$230). I've heard that the 660 has twice as much power, but is it worth it for me? I can currently afford a 650Ti, but should I save for a 660? Please help me, any advice would be much appreciated.

These are the cards I'm comparing:

660 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I would go with the 660, you get a better price/performance ratio. You can also play most modern games at high/ultra settings, with the 650 TI you would likely be hovering in the medium/high range. What games do you plan on playing, (if any) also would your PSU be able to power a 660?

well its difference from 5750 going to evga 660 ftw signature 2
i could play bf3 before but could get 60gps only if set everything to low. now i get on ultra 8msaa 40-45avg and 35-60fps on 64p mp maps

also if you have core2duo 650ti is probably better but if you have quad core then go for 660 ftw if possible, its has the highest factory overclock and 3gb vram, tough if i am reading right 660ti ftw is for 50 bucks more. and that will last you even longer

If you can spare the extra $60 and have a power supply that can support it, go for the 660.

+1 to that. The GTX660 is more than worth the price difference. As you've been told, the performance difference is huge (not quite double though). The GTX660 will max anything at 1080p and AA except Far Cry 3. GTX650 Ti can still max a lot of games, but the more demanding ones will need you to drop settings or disable AA. GTX650 Ti is a cool little card and not a bad purchase, but the GTX660 is a far better buy. You really will get a lot extra for your money.

True. The CPU would likely be the next bottleneck you'll encounter, maybe even with the 650 ti. I'd still reccommend the 660 however, as you could use it in a new system a year or two down the road should you decide to ditch the old C2D.

Whoever said I had a Core 2 Duo? I have an AMD FX-4100 Quad Core graphics card running at 3.6Ghz.

Wrong page. Sorry. :p 
Since it's a quad-core, you shouldn't have any bottlenecking issues with the CPU with the 660.

I have a 450W PSU. I'm not sure if that would run it, would it?

You should be okay. I would definitly look into a more powerful PSU before upgrading anything else, however.

I really appreciate it! Happy Holidays!
