Hey guys, just looking for a bit of input here. I currently have an EVGA GTX 560 (256 bit) 2GB card that I'm wanting to upgrade. I'm thinking of getting the 660 ti, but the 192 bit memory bus has me worried. I've read several reviews on the 660 ti and it seems like it performs quite a bit better than my current gpu. What would you do in my situation? My CPU is an i5-3570k (stock), 8GB ram at 1333 mhz, Antec BP-550.

A good friend of mine built a gaming rig based around that card, and eventually ran it in SLI. He had some minor issues in getting the image onto a large screen (excess of 46") but aside from that it runs cool and maxes out Battlefield 3. From my perspective, do it. the 660 TI is not a card to scoff at.

Agreed the 660Ti is a solid card its missing a few items to make it a 670. Going from a non ti version of the 560 to a 660Ti is a pretty solid upgrade. A 660Ti runs around the speed of a single 580 but with more DX11 maturity and stronger tech lower power consumption and heat as well.

meh. theres still a 100$+ price gap. best bang for bucks is 660ti. and 670 if u can afford. 680 is just too expensive for its own good.

the 660ti can pwn a 580 thats simple. at stock and overclocked no competition there.

A 660Ti beats out a 580 in DX11 Tasks but in everything else is very close within 5 percent of each other. And I agree with the 660Ti being the bang for the buck choice. And by the same token the 670 is normally the bang for buck on the high end market.

I kind wish I would of purchased a 4 gig 670 however its okay though things don't really utilize 4 gigabytes on a 1080 display.
