I don't know which to get... The GTX 660ti the 670 or the 680. I won't be getting the 680 since its only 5% faster than 670 but i want to know how the 660ti stacks up against them both.

I use dual 23" inch monitors running at 1920 x 1080. I only use one monitor in game.

CPU - AMD FX-8350 4.0GHz 8-Core Processor

since the 660 and 670 is quite same....
I would definitely go with the TOP. I've heard that EVGA has the best warranty so if your looking for the best warranty instead, go for EVGA. But if your not looking at that, You should go with the ASUS TOP. Best cooler and more quiet card.

The 660Ti and the 670 are most definitely not the same. The big difference between the two gpu's is one is a aftermarket card with a non reference card reference cards come with blower design coolers where as aftermarket fans are built with cooling and noise more into consideration.

1. ROPS: The 670 has 32
The 660Ti/660 has 24
2. Memory Bit: The 660/ti 192bit
The 670 has 256
3. CUDA cores: The 660/Ti has 960 with non ti, and 1344 with the Ti
The 670 has 1344

If you get a non reference card you could go with something like these.

If you go reference pick one of the EVGA cards I wouldn't touch any of the other branded reference branded coolers.

Also, given the pricing between the 670 and the 680 the 680 is not worth it.
