Which card!?!?!

#1 Edited by EvilDeathsyth (46 posts) -

So the title sort of tells you guys what I am looking for. I am looking to upgrade my video card since I have been DL so many games on STEAM as of late. I currently am running this EVGA 01G-P3-1563-A1 GeForce GTX 560 Ti. Its worked up until recently trying to play Payday 2 and Saints Row IV it just doesn't look as good. I was curious what card you guys you guys would recommend. I have been an Nvidia guy for a long time so I am not on the up and up when it comes to ATI cards. I found this today and it seemed to be a decent deal on a mid-upper style card. The card is a Asus GTX660 TI-DC2OC-3GD5 GeForce GTX 660 Ti Graphic Card. Let me know what you guys think and whether or not I should wait or other deals you have.

- Thanks GB Crew!

** I should put the 560 ti works great but I wanna toss it into my fathers PC so he can hook it up to his tv. He has my old geforce 8800gt in his machine and it seems to be chugging along now.**

Don't get the 660Ti. A GTX 760 is the same price and is more powerful.

What's your budget?

im looking to spend no more than $250 on the card.

Get this. Its a $1 more expensive, is more powerful, and comes with Batman: Arkham Origins for free.

I was just looking into that one! Is EVGA the best of the group it seems like it.

You can overclock the card yourself. For $5 extra though a factory OCed card isn't too bad. The improvement is going to be minimal though. But hey, so is $5!

Yeah, I would go with the 760 and in my experience, EVGA is a fantastic manufacturer.

True, I think I will go with your suggestion Andorski! Thanks for the info!

I bought the MSI 760 about a month ago and would highly recommend it. It's nearly silent (at least compared to my old cards), and from the research I did prior, the card runs a couple of degrees colder than the other manufacturers, so you can push a little bit more if you over clock it. Though from what I've read, you can't really go wrong with any of the card makers barring faulty hardware or unforeseen accidents.

You just know it's a holographic Charizard under there. It has to be.
