660 Ti vs. 670

First off I
ll list currect specs because it only makes sense.

AMD FX-8120 ]

EVGA SuperNOVA NEX750G

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB DDR3 1600

SanDisk Extreme 120GB SATA III

ASUS M5A99x EVO AM3+

ROSEWILL THOR V2 WHITE

SAMSUNG 1 TB 7200

GTX 9500 (lol)


I was wondering if i should get 3GB GDDR5 660 Ti or just go ahead and get 670. I might get a second of either when the time comes.
Right now all I play is FPS games like CS:GO and Skyrim wil HD texture packs would be nice.

  1. no love for the new guy :(
  2. Get the 670 gtx, if you can afford it now, of course it will be better, for your cpu though, the 660 ti might be a better choice.
  3. is it because My CPU isn't good enough?
  4. It could bottleneck the 670 gtx by a bit, that cpu from is from the bulldozer architecture which isn't that good.
    But in most games, i'm sure it won't, though, the value and performance for your system could be on the 660 ti side.
  5. alright thanks, and one more thing when I get the 660 Ti that will but total cost at around 1.1k is that a good price/performance ratio or no?
  6. You didn't buy all the parts yet ?
    Or that 1.1k is in some kind of currency outside dollars for a card.
  7. sorry $1100 USD after I buy the card will be the total
  8. for my whole system

    +1..Btw if you can do it go intel and get the 670. 660ti is cool if you on a budget but i would rather go for the better card..Which is why im going 770 780 on the next upgrade from 660ti
  10. Best answer
    If you didn't buy the cpu yet, i recommend going with a piledriver one(if you prefer amd cpus), it should not be too much more, either a FX-6300 or FX-8320/8350.
    As for the card, if it fits the budget with those cpus above, get the 670 gtx, if you have already paid for the cpu, get the 660ti, if you're in a tight budget, get the 660 ti, it will provide a good experience in gaming at 1080p.
  11. Because If I think about it, I could hae done a lot for with the $1100
  12. sadly I already bought it. I should have gotten the newer CPU but there isn't too much I can do now. but is it still alright for $1100?

  14. It's not bad, just the wrong cpu from amd, but it's still a decent one, so just get the 660 ti, who knows in the future you might upgrade to a steamroller(next amd cpus compatible with your board) one and new card from newer generations, so get the 660 ti.
  15. the 660ti would be nice to. Im just not feeling its memory bandwidth loss
  16. what would I do with old CPU? i wonder if there is a place that would take it off my hand lol. newegg has a very tight return policy.
