Hi all, i did my research and read reviews, settled yet torn between either of 2 perfect cards for me:

gigabyte 660
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

or

gigabyte 650 ti 2gb
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

My system:
i5 3570k @ stock
integrated HD4000 graphics (for now)
8gb crucial ram @1600
Seasonic gold rated psu 550w
Asrock Mini-itx Z77 mobo

My monitor is a 22" analog flatpanel from Samsung (SyncMaster s22b150) with only a vga connector, its 1 years old n I'm not upgrading soon.

Will choosing the better graphics card show any benefits to gaming and graphic editing on my analog screen? I know the 660 is a better card but i'd need to use a div to d-sub converter, while the 650 ti has an onboard vga connector. Hope yall get my question and appreciate any insight!

From my experience as long as the cable is in good conditions there wil be no difference between dvi and vga, the converter is always included in the package with the gpu if i were you I´ll go with the 660

Tnx pit_1209! i just wanted be sure my monitor wouldn't act as a bottleneck for the better card.

I think imma go with the gigabyte 660 because i really like the cooler on it. They don't include a d-sub converter but i have one that came with my motherboard.

There are significant differences when it comes to display setup though. Using an analog input means none of the flatpanel scaling options will be available. I switched to a DVI cable because of this.

and from my experience too, there are difference. With dvi you'll have more resolution to choose, and a little bit sharper image (this maybe because my vga cable too old. Use it from 2003 :lol:  )
