If anyone knows, is there any point of getting it?

Thanks in advance

Screen resolution? Computer specification? What do you use the computer for?

If you play games at 1080p sure... if you play at 7680x1600 then no... It is all situational... I am goin gto assume you play games at 1080p, now the question what are you trying to compare it too? Are you asking if it is worth the extra X amount of dollars vs a reference GTX 660?

I am wondering if theres any point of going for it over the reference EVGA card, by the way im in UK so use amazon or ebuyer or overlockers.co.uk #

My budget is £165 but i will go £175 for the ftw if theres a point

idc if amd or nvidia

Thanks for replying

Do you think I should grab an EVGA for £160? (stock)

You could do that... it will be slightly louder and run a bit warmer. But if you have bad case airflow I would get the stock blower either way...

Personally I would fork over the extra £7.50 and get the better cooled card, would make overclocking it and keeping it at good temps easier... Unless of course like i said - you have bad case airflow.

I am stuck inbetween these cards and do not know which one to get, they are both the same price!

Thanks in advance

Both cards should perform nearly identically, but I prefer EVGA due to their service and support.

Go for evga gtx 660 ftw.evga is one of best manufactures of nvidia gpu.it is a Ftw card so it has better pcb design and good cooling materials.

I think Im going for the FTW version as apparently it has better cooling, i have very good airflow (corsair 200r)

Thanks for all the help!
