Default Switching MSI GTX 680 Lightning to 2xMSI GTX 660TI - 04-05-2013, 11:03 | posts: 42 | Location: Poland

Hello,
Is it worth to change my GTX 680 Lightning to 2xMSI GTX 660TI with the same price? I`m affraid about microstuttering. Am I right?

660 is different of 660TI

In my opinion keep the 680 and in the future grab another or wait for the new series.

This all the way I would never advocate going from a 256bit memory bus to a 192bit.

Best way at the moment is to wait for new generation or giving second one to SLI or maby get the gtx 690 or titan? You know. I`m a little disapointed. Crysis 3 can`t run smooth at Very High, Tomb Raider with TressFX is little to slow for me..........,I want to have solid 60 fps in all games including future releases like BF4.

Its a feasible move if you get the 3gb versions.

[H] did a 3gb 660ti sli review and were very impressed.

Nearly did the same move myself, but I use Lucid MVP for VVS so sli was a no go.

I agree, x2 660Ti is really nice, though to be worth it in this case, like slickric says gotta be them 3gb versions.
