GTX 660 TI or GTX 670

11 posts in this topic

Hi,

Don't really know anything about graphics cards, but I know I need an upgrade and want to play the latest on the best graphics I can..

Should I go for the 660 ti or should I spend that bit extra and get the 670? Is the performance increase worth the money?

I've researched as much as I can, and kinda picked up they both can handle the latest on high settings.. But can't really find any what compare the two

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

PS - Which should I go for in terms of Manufacturer? There's so many and I don't really know the difference

The 670 will have a bit more 'Oomph'. It's really up to you.

EVGA GTX 670. No doubt. It's a lovely graphics card and overclocks quite easily. The stock cooler is decent too. :)

I knocked this up for you:

Prices are on the far right. You'll easily tell from the prices which one of the two is more preferable...

670 is worth the extra money if you want / have it. It will play nearly every game on max settings at 1080p. It handles Crysis 3 on high settings. It will last you a bit longer than the 660Ti.

One tip, don't do what I did and get the reference 670s, they're loud as hell when the fans get going. Sadly, they were all that were available in my region of Switzerland when I had to buy a new GPU. Am sorely tempted to replace the cooler on mine.

I upgraded from a 570GTX to the EVGA 660ti 3Gb Superclocked model and tbh it wasn't as big a jump as I hoped, still a cracking card but I kinda wish I spent the extra ?50 on top of what I did for the wider memory bus of the 670GTX, it does make a hell of a difference, esp as you up your gaming resolution.

The benchmark is 649 points higher so it seems that the extra 26mhz and wider memory bus makes a bit of a difference. Surprisingly the 690 scores worse than the 680 and 670 on this website. Overclocking can also close/widen the gap

Sorry I'm an idiot, the resolution is 1920 x 1080..

I have a spare ?300 so may go for the 670 then :)

Thanks for all your input, all is appreciated.
