I am looking to get a new graphics card and I cannot decide which one to get, I game a decent amount, but I don't make videos or stream, but I may in the future. The two graphics card I have on my mind are the MSI 660Ti(non SLI) and the GTX 680, but I am open to other recommendations as well. PLEASE HELP!!!

P.S. If I get a 660Ti I can get an SSD, but if I get a 680 I won't be able to get an SSD

Here's my recommendation:


1) If you're only planning to play WoW for the time being, then get the 660Ti with the SSD. The difference you'll see in performance (windows start-up) is much more noticeable than the fps surplus you'll see with the 680.

2) If you think the SSD capacity isn't enough to satisfy your current needs and you are willing to buy one in the foreseeable future, get the 680 and wait for SSD prices to continue to drop. Cost-wise it's easier to replace storage than your GPU.

edit : You're really asking us to compare two graphic cards that aren't relatively close in price. The 680 of course is a less bang for your buck but you're only future proofing just that slight bit more.

WoW is a CPU Bound game.
So a good CPU is more needed.

Yes, its worth it. You can game at Ultra 1080p in other listed games too.
