My GPU got caught in a rain storm so I need to upgrade. I have no brand loyalty and would like the best performance I can get. I want at least 1 HDMI and then either another HDMI or 2 DVI. I am trying to stay under $200. The most GPU intensive things I do are Skyrim and Fallout 3 at max detail and using two HD monitors.

My system


Mobo: ASUS P7H55-M LX
CPU: Core i3 550 (3.2 Ghz)
Ram: 8GB DDR3
PSU: 550W
Monitors: two 23" Acer S231HL 1080p


At the moment I am trying to decide between these two, basically if the extra $30 is worth it.

GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST superclocked at $165
GeForce GTX 660 superclocked at $195


I am definitely open to other suggestions though, especially if they offer a better performance/cost value.

Thanks.

Old card was a PNY VCG98GTEE1XPB GeForce 9800 GT if anybody cares.

from what i read gtx 660 only gives you +10% performance over gtx 650 ti boost. so you have to ask yourself whether that +10% worth that extra $30.

Roughly 10 frames or more depending on what game you play. Also the one in the link i showed you is the non superclocked version. So it'll be even higher frames.
