    At 1080p the 660Ti is atleast three times better than 560Ti.

    It's quite the card but keep your money if you aren't facing major fps issues until the next consoles arrive or some really heavy games show up.

    660 Ti is faster than 480, 570 and 580. 660 Ti is about 50% faster than 560 Ti @ 1920x1080. Not that small difference, IMO.

    it would be a good upgrade...but i wonder how it will perform in games to come like farcy 3 and crysis 3? maybe a 670 will be a more sure bet.

    I'll wait for a GTX 760 TI to come. 560 TI is enough for 1080P nowadays.

    What do you guys think about 2 GTX 560 Ti SOC cards in 2 way SLI compared to 1 GTX 660 TI?

    That's what I'm running & will be upgrading to a 3570K within a month

    Keep it for another year and then look for an upgrade.

    If you already have a GTX560Ti and an SLI capable motherboard with sufficient power supply, I'd go SLI now and wait for the 700 or 800 series. If you have any other reason to replace your graphics card, such as failure, a GTX660Ti would be a good buy.

    Thanks guys :) Just needed to hear a few opinions. I'm running 2 Gigabyte GTX 560 Ti SOC cards right now in SLI & have been reading a good number of reviews on the GTX 660 Ti & man are they nice (even 1 GTX 660 Ti scores over 31,000 in 3DMark Vantage, but it takes me 2 GTX 560 Ti super overclocked cards to reach 32,000)

    I'm very happy with them though & I'm only using 1 23" 1920x1080 display.

    I can't see this to be true, unless you don't play games maxed out with AA/AF with supersampling.

    If you keep waiting, you'll never own a card to give you a better gaming experience.

    Just my opinion on the matter.

    Yeah, since i own a 570 and game at 1080p, then i know fine well a 560ti isn't anywhere near enough unless your happy with turning down settings or are ok with 30fps.

    Personally i would get the 660ti, as i think it would be a good upgrade over the 560ti, if you wait for the next gen cards, then your just going to have to put up with poor performance with every game that is out before then, especially when there are some system heavy beasts coming up over the next 6 months.

    supersampling is the killer, i personal dont like it seeing it has blur had 670 that i sent back to get 660ti, and only thing that peg the card are 99% power and load was supersampling. normal AA it didnt go past 60% that even with 16x AA.

    660ti if u dont go AA crazy but if you do 670 better

    I usually wait a generation or two between upgrades. If I have to lower graphic details a bit rather than forking over a ton of cash for every new video card that comes out, so be it.

    anit that the truth. 6 month down the that brand spanking new high end card just got replaced, sorta like cpu it usual why i only update cpu/mb once ever 2-3 years probable even less for gpu.

    I had 9800gt that served me great for 3 years and 2 pc builds till about 5 months ago when it died rma'ed got 450gts back. other then the dx11 features i think the 9800gt was better. but that could all be in my head

    Got love evga and lifetime warranty 9800gt had and the 450gts they sent me has same warranty!

    Depends a lot on the games you play and the settings you're comfortable with, whether or not a 560Ti is enough. Most games will run just fine with moderate settings anyway.

    Placebo effect. You have it in your head that your 9800GT was a high end card and the GTS450 is a budget card, so the 9800GT was better even though the 450 is actually faster.

    wont argue its faster with AA off and all that, but with AA on the 9800gt gave me better frames, or maybe it was just the old games ran better onthe 9800gt who knows. but i know 9800gt had much higher mem bandwith

    This.

    The 660Ti might be a good upgrade from a 460/470/480.
    I'd wait until the next gen comes around, or until they remove this retarded power boost feature and allow normal manual overclocking.

    Also: Driver support doesn't seem to be terribly good for 6xx right now. People with the highest end ones have been reporting many issues with lots of games..
