Both 2GB cards Evga GTX 660 SuperClocked vs GTX 650 TI BOOST SuperClocked are curently on promotion and the price difference is 30$.
The 660 comes with Metro last light, the 650 with 75$ free to play in-game cash.

Is the 30$ extra worth it to get the 660 and is the 660 SC a good card, I have heard mixed reviews about many of them failing?

I current specs are :
- Core2Duo e6850 3ghz
- 6GB DDR2 ram
- 500w Cooler Master power supply
- Old and defective 8800GTS (gives artifacts in games)

I don't plan to change anything else in this PC, I just want to buy a good video card for games, that will last me a long time and that I could reuse if I ever replace my PC eventually.

Definitely worth the extra $30... and if the 660 SC is giving problems, you can definitely find some threads and then make an informed decision

Thanks, I finally went for a 7870 OC from Gigabyte, got an amazing deal for it. I need a new PC now, that C2D is a huge bottleneck :p

I went with 2 650 ti Boost SC in SLI, I did have to upgrade my CPU to a QX6800, since I am running on a evga 680i board. My settings on FAR Cry 3 went from medium to ultra high. I stepped up from XFX 260GTX.

Newegg has a good deal on the 660 right now. has a free game and a rebate that would put you at the same price as the 650ti boost.
