Worth getting a 660 over a 7870
Dec 27, 2012, 11:29 PM
Been considering getting this 660
over this 7870
because it has a higher clock speed (boosted) and of course, it supports PhysX. It is also cheaper. Should i get this 660 over the 7870?

Clock speeds mean nothing over companies and architectures.
And it depends if you play games with PhysX.
I would go 7870 but that is just my personal preference.

660 has similar performance than the 7870, plus it has PhysX and all the Nvidia exclusive things. So I would recommend getting the 660.
