Closed Worth getting a 660 over a 7870 Tags: Graphics Cards Physx Graphics Last response: January 4, 2013 9:01 AM in Graphics & Displays Share camohanna a b U Graphics card December 27, 2012 11:29:59 PM Been considering getting this 660 http://www.computerlounge.co.nz/components/componentvie... over this 7870 http://www.computerlounge.co.nz/components/componentvie... 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? More about : worth 660 7870 Best solution kracker December 27, 2012 11:36:12 PM 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. Share Pingypoker December 27, 2012 11:38:41 PM 660 has similar performance than the 7870, plus it has PhysX and all the Nvidia exclusive things. So I would recommend getting the 660.
