    Question about Nvidia GTX660

    So, because of financial issues, I'm upgrading my PC part by part, I started last year's summer and this is my setup so far:

    P8H61 EVO motherboard
    Core i7-2600/3.4GHz/
    8 GB RAM Corsair
    Asus GeForce 9800GTX+ DK TOP

    is the GTX660 going to be a good card for this setup? I'm quite used to upgrading parts every 3 or so years, so will it last me at least 3 years, running the games at least on high with some AA? I'm currently on 1680x1050 resolution, but soon I'm getting a new monitor as well which is going to be 1920x1080. The dilemma I'm having is either the GTX660Ti, which is actually quite hard to find in my country and I may very well have to wait a considerable time to get it, or the GTX660 which is in stock currently. I'm just wondering if the GTX660 is a good card overall and if GTX660Ti is worth the waiting and the additional money. Thanks in advance for any answers.

    Yeah, the 660 would be a fine addition to that build, although for the cost of a 660 you can probably get a Radeon card (7850 or 7870) that performs a lot better.

    Either way, adding a new GPU will make that build last another couple of years, easily.

    The 7850 is not considered better than the 660. Recently, due to the aggressive pricing of Nvidia cards, AMD cards might not have the best price/performance ratio anymore.

    If you're looking for 660 Ti performance, the 7950 has slightly better performance and might not have the same price ramp-up as the 660 Ti.
