I'm looking on buying a Gigabyte Windforce OC'd GTX 660. I'm planning on playing games being released in 2013 like Crysis 3, Dead Space 3 and StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm.
I know I'll be able to max out on the other two games but I dont think a GTX 660 can max out on Crysis 3 at 1080p!

I'm on a really strict budget and can cover a 660. Should I go for it? What do you guys think at what setting will I be able to play Crysis 3?

Definitely - no problem on Very High settings @ about 45fps average. You will need to keep Antialiasing at SMAA x2, though. I don't see any reason to use MSAA or TXAA, since SMAA works very well.

No you will not be able to max out Crysis 3 with a 660, in the Beta my setup is hitting 85-95fps Max setting SMAA @ 1920x1200. So this mean a single GTX 680 will be around 40-50fps. Of course its still a beta right now and I am sure driver performance will increase within the next few weeks!

My heavily overclockeed 670 can max out most games at 1080p and 120fps - I think it ran far cry 3 at 65fps, and it runs the Crysis 3 beta at about 50fps.

Wait a month, until things have moved beyond Beta. GPU Benchmarks will be coming out at the end of February/early March. Then you can make an informed decision. Right now, no one knows.

Not sure SLI is perfectly optimized yet in C3 - a single GTX 680 should hit around 60fps, and a GTX 660 around 45fps with SMAA Medium (looks as good as 4xMSAA IMO). Because my setup consistently runs at 25-35 fps on VH + SMAA x2 @1080p.

You won't be able to run the game at the highest settings with high SMAA. I benchmarked the game with highest settings and 4x SMAA on a GTX 670 parred with an i5-3570 and got 45 FPS in average. If you cut down the SMAA to FXAA I think you will be able to run the game at an acceptable framerate with the highest settings.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_J1_zPKa-AU here is a video of the performance, I'm sorry that I couldn't make the benchmark with my previous GTX 660. :)

Hmm... Benchmarked with fraps, that outta munch up the framerate a bit!
Crysis doesn't use PhysX does it? I have a 9800 GTX+ and can use it for such processing. I think I'll get a 660, but just after a while, best option right now is to wait.

I actually just built my first PC a couple days ago.

I have the EVGA superclocked edition of gtx 660 with an i7 3770k processor on an Asrock z77 extreme4 motherboard.

My Crysis 3 settings:

-Everything maxed out in advanced graphic settings except I leave 2 or 3 of the settings(shading, post processing, and sometimes shadows) on just high instead of very high.

-Vsync is disabled

-anti-aliasing on FXAA because when I tested all of them out they hardly changed anything.


Also, I run the game at 1080p.

My fps = 50-75. The least fps I've seen was probably around 47 or 48.

Can't wait to SLI another gtx 660 and have BETTER performance than a 680 for a CHEAPER value.

Of course the 680 is a better route if you want to not use as much power and/or only want one card, but I got the 660 and a 650w Cosair PSU because I wanted to take the SLI route.

Hope this helps!

Ah, good old Crysis. I used to frequently re-build my rig around trying to get that swine to run maxed out!!!!

You're talking about maxing out, hah! I finished Crysis and Crysis 2 on an 8400 GS! :p

MSI afterburner's OSD should have cost of your GPUs right under the temp! Im kidding... But honestly I run a heavily OCed I7 and 2 mildly OCed GTX 680s in SLI (MSI Twin Frozr 4GB) on my 650 watt PSU. The fan barely runs in it.

Not to threadjack D:, but I'm also wondering about this. I am debating getting a gtx 650 ti ($119) non ti ($90 ish) 660 ($195) or a 660 ti for around $250-260. Which would be best bang for buck?
I imagine my slower cpu, the phenom x4 830 will bottleneck it a little bit, but i do have 12gb ram and will get an ssd too.

How many fps will the 660 get over the 650 ti, or the 660 ti? I'll likely play other games than this (i main tf2, and play some bf3 and ac3 and stuff) so I don't need the max settings max fps. But I'd like to get decent fps.

System specs
12gb ram
phenom x4 830
crappy amd gpu ->upgrading to one of these newer gpus but i cant decide

The 660 is faster than the 650 ti and non ti.
The 660 is the best bang for the buck, you wouldnt get much power from a 650 and a 660 ti is just an overclocked 660 and they price more for it.
Best option is to get the 660. The best one is Gigabyte Windforce OC GTX 660! :D

The GTX 660Ti is NOT an overclocked 660. But yes, the GTX 660 is the best bang for the buck right now. You should get at least 60fps on Ultra at 1080p in the games you mentioned, provided you don't turn on MSAA. If you do, you're looking at around 40-50fps which is still pretty good.

Rohan my specs are:

i7 3770k 3.5 ghz
Asrock extreme 4 motherboard
crucial ballistix sport 8gb 1600 DDR3 Ram
Corsair 650 Enthusiast PSU
Phantaom 410 black case
EVGA GTX 660 superclocked (stock)
2 TB Seagate HD

I haven't overclocked anything manually, yet. The 660 came superclocked already but I will overclock that soon. Also, I think I'm getting the second GTX 660 card this weekend. :D

I'm running an Alienware Aurora Standard Chassis with
- i7
- 8gigs ram
- a single oem GTX 660

I get 60 to 45 fps sticking around 55-50 for the most part
Here are my settings for Crysis 3 beta.
-1920x1080
-TXAA High (4XT 1)
-V-Sync on
Advanced Settings
-Game Effects High
to
-Texture Resolution High
-Anisotropic Filtering 16x
-Lens Flare Yes
-Motion Blur Medium
It looks great and runs smooth I have no problems. For the quality you get you can't beat the price and you can always get a second later for even better performance
