I was wanting to know if there is a better card or an equal card for less then the one I'm looking at, one thing that appeals to me about this card is the look its nice and sleek but I want performance over looks . So I was wondering if there is a card that's cheaper that's better or about the same as this one and I want it to run cool nothing over 60c. Thanks for your answers .
The GeForce GTX 660 comes with clock speeds of 980 MHz on the GPU, and 1502 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 960 SPUs as well as 80 Texture Address Units and 24 ROPs.
Compare all of that to the Radeon HD 7870, which comes with core clock speeds of 1000 MHz on the GPU, and 1200 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 1280 SPUs along with 80 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.
no need to buy a gtx 660 for $299 when you can get better performance with a 7870 which is currently $234.
I see where you are coming from but if you would have looked at the card I was thinking of getting it is a gtx 660 TI FTW it's not just a normal gtx 660. So the core clock is 1046MHz with a boost clock of 1124MHz and 6008Mhz of effective memory clock
