    Hey there,

    I have around 280 € ~ 360$ to spend on a new gpu, and I was thinking nVidia this time around, because I decided random BSODs aren't as pleasent as one might think.
    I am torn whether or not a 660Ti is really worth the extra money compared to a regular 660, what are the main differences? Is it only faster clock speeds that I can reach by OCing a 660 anyways or are there actual, significant hardware differences?

    Thanks for your input.

    You already have a 7870?

    Is your Q9550 overclocked?

    Irrelevant, going to upgrade to i5-3570K very soon too. 7870 is gone because of BSODs. Allright thanks, so there are actual hardware differences, interesting.

    /\ True. You can find some Palit, PNY, ZOTAC basic stock ones tho for $410-420 but that's the lowest I have seen.
