heya there -) I have already read the thread that "digitalmanifestions" had started about the gtx 660 i replyed to that but i figured ide get faster attention if i made a new on since my system is different.THis system is not OCed.
I have a 600w OCZ PS
intel core 2 duo 3 gig
8 gig of balistsc ram timings pretty low.
Abit IP35 pro mobo
evga geforce gtx 260
2 7200rpm seagate in RAID 0
I just bought a Asus gtx 660 and a evga gtx 660 sc.I have done a CLEAN install of Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit twice and I did not knotice any diference in performance in the Asus 660 except for more lag.I returned the Asus gtx 660 and bought the evga 660 SC signature 2.Same issue more lag and no prefoemance gain.Could this be that the older GTX 260 requires 2 power connectors rather then the newer card with only needing 1?Ive returned both video cards and iam back to the gtx 260.Should i buy a 850 watt PS even tho 600w should be unough for the 450w requirement?Or are these new video cards looking for the i5 and i7 cpus?
