Hello, guys.

For Christmas this year I'm going to get myself a GTX660Ti, and I would like to know if there was anything I could do with an HD6950 after the new card is installed. I know using it as a dedicated PhysX card won't be an option, like some have been doing with their older cards, but perhaps there's something I could do with it? I'd trade it away, but it's gone through quite a bit of wear and tear, and the warranty has been voided due to some water-related mishap. I don't imagine I'd get very much for it. I was thinking of using it to specifically drive my secondary monitor, as well. Would that present problems?

Thanks,
JC

My opinion i would wait till the 700 series come out not saying the 660 TI is a bad card but at this rate and time the new series is about to come in a few months and ill rather see you with a gtx 770 or something. I also have the gtx 660 TI and even at that card i wanna get something bettter just my 2 cents

I really don't think the 660 Ti would be a huge update over your 6950, I would save your money until you can get a 670 or as suggested above wait until you hear about the new series if you can.

Agreed with the 2 previous posts. There is no much performance difference between the two cards so save more and get may be a GTX 670 or an AMD HD 7970 to feel a noticeable boost in your performance.

Agree... I would say the same thing just like others says above, keep your 6950 for now until you can afford something much better than 660 Ti...

Wise choice.. I see people still getting the 600 series and im not saying they bad cards because i own the 660ti my self but at this moment we are approaching the new cards.. If you can push it up u should go for a 770 if your going nvidia
