GeForce GTX 650ti or 660

I am currently deciding on a new graphics card for my PC and was wondering whether a GeForce GTX 650ti or 660 would be a better graphics card to get. I currently have the money for the 650ti but would have to save for the 660.

So should i save for the 660 or won't it make too much difference?

PC Specs:
Processor: intel i5 3570k (not overclocked)
RAM: 8GB 1600Mhz
Hard Disk Drive: 2TB sata 7500rpm
Monitors: 2x ASUS VE247H 2ms 1080x1920 -Second monitor not used for gaming

    The 650 Ti is overpriced.
  2. go for 660 factory oc if possible, 650ti is nothing if you want to get serious fps in games

  4. Save for the GTX 660.

    A lot of reviews claim the GTX 660 is the best bang-for-your-buck with this current generation of GPUs. You are talking a big boost in performance making the jump from the 650 Ti to the 660. The GTX 660 can play most games on the highest settings at a 1920x1080 resolution.
  5. In it's defense, the 650ti is not a bad card, it performs quite similar to the last gen 6870 and 560. It's just that a couple more bucks you could get a 7850 1GB which is better performance per dollar. There's no card in it's price point that can challenge it unless there's a great deal.

    Among those 2 though, if you can afford a 660, then that's the better choice.
  6. gtx 650 ti boost OC !!!

    650 ti TOP is a good card and not bad priced either (found for 85gbp) and you can run games from that link you sent at over 40 fps, I have used this card on crysis 3 at ultra settings and 1080p perfectly. Why on earth would you spend another maybe 60gbp to run games at the same level of detail just at higher fps (why would you want 100+ fps... thats just ridiculous) :no: enjoy!
  8. There's no way your running Crysis 3 on Ultra settings at 40 FPS average. I run Crysis 3 on Very High(the highest)detail settings, with 2xSMAA, Lense Flares On, and Motion Blue Medium, and I get anywhere from 35FPS at the very worst to 70FPS at the highest. About 50FPS average depending on the scene(the beginning of the game is far tougher on graphics cards). And I have a 660Ti. And a 660Ti performs a whole lot better than a 650 Ti, and also a good bit better than a 660.

    With a 650Ti, you'd have to drop the settings to High, if not Medium, turn lense flares off, put motion blur on low, and put on 1xSMAA to average 40FPS. Just look at the Tom's Hardware review and you can see where the 650Ti is at in relation to the 660Ti.

    The 650Ti is not a bad card at all. And at it's price point of 130$, sometimes lower, I still don't think there is a better bang for your buck if you can get it for 115$, and you can. But it's no 660Ti, nor is it even that close to a 650Ti Boost. So your not running Crysis 3 on "Ultra" settings with a 650Ti unless your at a resolution of 1200.

    Pretty sure I am... I can Fraps it for you and show you the settings and the fps if you really need proof, i have the TOP edition and I have that overclocked and my game runs fine in 1080p at its highest settings, im not one for lying, im just stating that this is possible - it could also be because i am running it from an SSD, I do notice some performance loss from a standard HDD but not that much, the rest of my system is a beast and i can run every game I have in max and 1080p, yes some have better fps than others but nothing noticeable to the eye :bounce:
