Which 660Ti do you guys suggest? Also I heard that it is limited by bandwidth, should I just go with the 660?

  5. Get the gigabyte 660 ti, a 660 gtx for 240$ vs a 660 ti 265$, the ti is worth the extra ~25$.

    Its limited but its not a deal breaker your going to still get some good frames with the gtx 660ti but dont crank the aa up sky high or try to go over 1080p.

    if that was the price difference i would have bought a ti. but the difference where i live is more like $219 vs $290.

    Same here. Except that 660 is around $260 whereas 660ti is $330 :??:
  9. go for 660 ti since its price difference is minimal. But if it would cost you like $50 more, better go for 660. I prefer Asus, quiet and cool.
  10. The limited bandwidth comes into effect when you hit 1080p and game beyond 4xAA. Then and only then will you see it shutter. The non-Ti would be doing the same thing.

    As is I think its Asus, then Gigabyte are the brands I would look at from Nvidia.
  11. 660Ti I think my cat will say its better too
  12. I agree for the gtx 660ti

    Not sure where you get your information from. XFX PSU's are made from Seasonic. They are great.

    GTX 660. I would choose that.

    My 670 TOP is great but unless you are doing crazy resolutions and insist on all settings on ULTRA AA max and so on.

    The 660TI and 660 perform too close to each other to warrant paying the extra IMO. Agree with Cyco's suggestions as well, throw in my Gigabyte 660 in the mix as well =P

    OP has edited his first post. It was something different at first, which if I remember correctly is probably something overkill. Or maybe I'm wrong :P. That XFX psu is good either way
  16. Think before buy : http://www.hwcompare.com/13322/geforce-gtx-580-3gb-vs-geforce-gtx-660/
    do u want to spend $50 to get extra 2fps in single game.
