I am in the market for a new graphics card. So far I narrowed it down to the ASUS (GTX660 TI-DC2-2GD5). Its the cheapest of the 660Ti's I can find in my area. ($259.88).
Most reviews and benchmarks I have found seem to deal with the ASUS (GTX660 TI-DC2T-2GD5)... The Top edition. I cant even seem to find that one anywhere. There is the (GTX660 TI-DC2T-2GD5) which is the overclocked edition and that one is about $30 more.
Is there any difference between the cards minus the fact that the Top edition and overclocked edition have higher clock speeds ? Will I get the same results if I just overclock the non Top non OC'ed version myself ?
Yep they should be very much the same, with the potential that the TOP uses higher binned chips (although that's not a guarantee that the regular version uses inferior chips). Save some money and overclock the regular version. Either way, you still get that great DirectCU cooler.
