Is the GTX 660 still a good card?

You can get a GTX660 for $200, and a GTX760 for $250. Is it worth the 25% increase? Probably not. I doubt it has 25% more performance. So it depends on what you want. I mean a GTX770 is $400, is it double the performance of a GTX660? It is all relative. You have to decide how much you want to spend and what performance level you desire.

If you can wing $250, a 760 would be a very nice improvement over a 660, but the 660 is fine. It'll be a lot better than a 5750 for sure.
I would like to point out that for around the same price as a GTX 660, the Radeon 7870 generally performs better.
Newegg has a good deal going on on this 7870 currently: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127722

Ive got the GTX 660 SC FTW Edition (not sure what FTW means in this case) and I can max all current games staying between 60 and 40 fps. I think it's a great card but I may have to upgrade once the next gen games start coming out if I want to keep the same settings.

I am so tired of these kinds of comments. Yes indeed I can. I care not if you choose to believe me but I am struggling with why you think it is not possible......

EDIT: Oh I see why now, you guys who spent more for your GPU get butthurt when you find out you didn'y have to. It's the same thing everyday here on the PC boards.

You either don't have a single demanding game in your library, you're "maxing" your games, or your framerate is quite a bit lower than you think. Computer hardware is pretty consistent; you don't have a magic 660.

Most guys here are just trying to stop the spread of misinformation, that's all. I understand the 660 is great, and that you're happy with its performance, but there is no single graphics card on the market today that can in fact run "all current games" at the maximum possible settings at 1080p, while keeping a constant 40-60fps.

Maybe by maxing out he means everything on high cept for AA, V SYNC and SSAO? just a guess.


On topic. 660 is a great card.
