Hey guy I'm planning on buying a 660 for my new build and was wondering what manufacturer you think is better gigabyte or MSI. I can get them for around the same price. Also if the MSI is better is it work an extra $20 to get the OC version.
I would get the normal 660 unless you feel comfortable paying the extra for the factory overclock. I wouldn't pay 20 dollars extra for a overclock but hey maybe to you its worth it. Your build looks solid thus far.
I would go MSI and overclock if you have no intent on overclocking I would say go for the overclocked version so at least they did it for you.
Gigabyte and OC MSI are nearly identical, the non OC MSI is slower
But the gigabyte has seem clock speeds as the OC MSI??
Why MSI over the Gigabyte because gigabyte seems to have better clock speed.
You are correct they are identical.
get the gigabyte, you could overclock it slightly and it is identical to the OC MSI, I think MSI made their normal version slow just so they could make an "OC" version, so yeah go with the gigabyte
I don't know I have a GTX670 from Gigabyte and it is very quiet there windforce coolers. However, I would have a easier time with MSI in terms of the twin frozr cards. However its up to you they are the same performance wise I just feel the MSI card has a higher quality level then the Gigabyte card.
