Pretty much just another "what the hell GPU do I buy" because I can't decide for the life of me.


EVGA 660 ti FTW Sig 2

EVGA 670 FTW sig 2

or go with an AMD card such as the 7950 or 7970 ( would need suggestions as too which one you recommend for those)

I'm aware the 670 is probably the best of the bunch but it is worth the extra cash (especially since the 79xx come with Crysis 3 and Bioshock inf right now) If it would only be like a 5 fps difference then....

More about : buy thread appreciated

it depends on what resolution you will be playing at
if below 1080p then go for 660 ti, at 1080p go for 670
or you can wait for new graphics cards to come out and get even more performance for your moneys lol

If I had to do it today, would get a 2- or 3-fan 7970 with the free games. Gigabyte Windforce comes to mind.

Yea I'll be playing at 1080 on a single monitor which is why I was leaning towards the 670 or the 660 ti because I was under the impression that Nvidia cards performed better at 1080 while the AMD cards gain a significant advantage when you start throwing in higher res.

All feedback points to the latest AMD drivers eliminating the advantage nVidia had. Still, love my 670 (except the noise) so you're fine there too. Again, always go with a multi-fan card, not reference.
