Gtx 660 Ti worth extra $80 over gtx 660

Hello, everyone!

I am in the market for a new computer, and I am on a moderate budget.
I was wondering if buying a 660Ti is worth $80 over a 660. Any responses would be cool, thanks! :D

  1. In any game, the Ti version doesn't give any more than 8fps more than the regular version.

    Well the large difference is within the CUDA core count which is a bit higher with the 660Ti and has the card slated against the 7950 versus the non Ti which is more slated towards the 7870.

  3. Yes. I highly recommend the 660 Ti if your are looking at around the $320 range. (get the 3GB version)
  4. I agree with you man only you are wrong price wise quite a bit lower at the moment :)

  5. wow, I've been looking in the wrong places. I forgot about that site all together.
  6. :D! well now you know :P
  7. but the 3GB 1GHz versions are about $320.
  8. but unless you're playing with 3 monitors it doesn't make a huge difference.

    I'm only using one monitor
    1600 x 900 @60 hz
    (I plan to buy a 1080p monitor later)
  10. If the Ti version is $80 more, I'd definetely buy the regular one.
  11. I wouldn't the 660Ti essentially is the same thing as a 670 the only difference is the memory bit and a smaller ROPS. When a 660Ti compares to the 2nd fastest card from AMD that means something. Get the best with what you can afford because buyers remorse sucks.
  12. personally I would go with 660 Ti if you can pay the extra $80. it's basically a 670.

    Yeah, only difference is 192 vs 256 bit memory bus
  14. Which does make a difference at the high end but essentially yea you are getting a skimped down 670 kind of like the 560Ti with 448 cores did with the 570.

    (I'm new to this so sorry if I am wrong)
    bigger memory bus is only really effective at higher resolutions, right?
  16. mostly, and for 3D rendering.
  17. Not necessarily I mean if you were to play on a higher resolution it will really show It also goes into speed as well how much faster it can process things basically means more information can be transferred.
