I have the option to buy one of the following graphic cards at the exact same discounted price: MSI GTX 660Ti 2GB OC (NOT Power Edition) Gigabyte GTX 660Ti 2GB Windforce2 (NOT Over Clocked) Does it really matter which one I take? If it does, which do you believe to be better why?
MSI has better quality components and a better cooler on it, which would mean that you can overclock it more. I vote for MSI.
there have been some issues with some MSI cards having dodgy circuitry leading to overvoltage of certain components and hardware failure, it affects 660ti and 670 cards. i would stay away from msi for the time being.
they both are good cards. Have Gigabyte its good, gold.
I had a Gigabyte MOBO and graphics card that served me for 6 years without a tick. I vote for Gigabyte.
best 660ti editions are 1.gigabyte 2.asus 3.other manufacturer
