Okay. I have two AMD Sapphire 6950's in my gaming computer and I was wondering if a GTX 660 Ti would be much of an upgrade. I been wanting to switch to an nVIDIA card for a while now because most of my game use PhysX and recommend nVIDIA. Is a 660 Ti a good choice or should I choose a different card. I'm looking around the $200-$300 range.

I had two 6950's and upgraded to a 7970. I would consider this the bare minimum to be considered an upgrade. My fully over clocked card is 40% stronger than stronger than a stock 670 in benchmarks, and it is only 20% stronger than my 6950's. so a 660 ti is weaker than that.

Gpu set up look like this. 1x gpu=x16; 2x gpu=x16+x16=(x32); 3x gpu=x16+x8+x8=(x32); 4x gpu=x16+x8+x4+x4=(x32). so 2xgpu=4xgpu.
My recamend is use 1x6950 And1x660ti in 2xgpu setup.
sell one 6950.

Sounds like there's a lot of pseudo science in there. :heink:

I suspect you don't know what "16x" actually means in this context.
Also you cant SLI/Crossfire AMD and Nvidia cards (except when you hack drivers, and thats only for PhysX).
