So i plugged in my clocks into this site ----> http://www.gpureview.com/geforce-gtx-660-ti-card-670.ht...
Msi 660ti
Core Clock: 1306
Memory Clock: 3600

I got this: (660ti)
Core Clock: 1305 MHz
Shader Clock: 1305 MHz
Memory Clock: 3609 MHz (7218 DDR)
Memory Bandwidth: 173.2 GB/sec
FLOPS: 3507.84 GFLOPS
Pixel Fill Rate: 31320 MPixels/sec
Texture Fill Rate: 146160 MTexels/sec

Compared to this: (680)
Core Clock: 1006 MHz
Shader Clock: 1006 MHz
Memory Clock: 3004 MHz (6008 DDR)
Memory Bandwidth: 192.256 GB/sec
FLOPS: 3090.432 GFLOPS
Pixel Fill Rate: 32192 MPixels/sec
Texture Fill Rate: 128768 MTexels/sec

So according to that, the 680 beats me in Pixel Fill Rate and not but much! Also memory bandwidth by about 20Gb/s. But my 660ti wins out in Flops and Texture Fill Rate by a good margin :) 

Curse you 192-bit Memory Interface!!! :)

Nice, too bad one can't overclock a 680.

LOL :)  My Msi 660ti really does run at those speeds, but I know real world is always different then on paper

Its all meaningless. You can compare a fill rate, teraflops and all that crap but at the end of the day it comes down to which is actually faster in game.

Its not utterly absurd for a lower tier card to be able to OC and match a more expensive one. But a 680 overclocks too, thats not to mention that fact that a 660ti cant OC itself out of being struck down by its 192bit memory.

Try running Unigine Valley benchmark at 1080p maxed out. A 680 gets about 45FPS, that will give you an actual idea of how close you are.

I am not trying to beat a 680, I know the 660ti cant because of the 192-bit interface. I am just showing that you dont have to spend $500+ for a graphics card to get good performance. My 660ti runs all my games max settings 60+fps. Once games change I will SLI it, but for now I am happy. I also know that a 680 can overclock :)  But think about this your going to spend $200 more dollars for how much more performance?? My 660ti just closed the $200 gap :)

And my 7870 LE can beat your 660ti for cheaper!

No way a 7870 beats a 660 ti, even if it's overclocked.
