Well I live in Europe, but I thought the 780 was $650 in united states?

660ti has 1344 shaders and 144GB/s memory bandwidth, 770 has 1536 shaders and 224GB/s mem bandwidth.

780 has 2304 Shaders and 288GB/s bandwidth, it is nearly double power of 660ti really. Though the 660ti is still quite a good card, don't rush upgrade here my friend.


I am unfortunately in Australia and stuff are expensive here. Like the other guy said, if it would be better for me just to get a decent laptop for uni then which of the three choices I posted is good. Leaning towards the cheapest one since its on special and I only plan to play strategy except total war on it.

Not worth it to go from a 660ti to a 770, you can handle most games at high settings right now with that card at 1080p. I would say wait until the next generation cards are released before even attempting to upgrade. Only reason to upgrade is if you were running multiple monitors which I would then recommend just getting a 2nd 660ti and running SLi.

Was suggested by others as well and yeah I was leaning towards that but I don't know if my mobo would be able to do SLI though. I will ask the shop. I don't see the benefit of running 2 monitors on my current games though and if other parts of my setup are compatible or not.

I am really asking for each and every opinion I could get on my options on what to do so I really have no regrets.

Site of the shop had this on special so I was thinking if it is a good one since that MSI one for $999 was gone. the other laptop options that I have are either

or

http://ple.com.au/ViewItem.aspx?InventoryItemId=612659

If the first one is alright for the price I am leaning towards that but I could extend my budget to that MSI if its worth it or even that 2nd one.


Bump. Need decisions on which to buy by the end of the night. would greatly appreciate any advise received.

If you want a new card, get the 760. Most games run a 660 on High settings, and the highest settings are just for the newest cards with some boost in performace for a CPU and RAM i.e. OC or turbo boost.

Don't use AA or just leave it at x2.

He has a 660Ti so a 760 would nearly be a straight sidegrade.

That's like the worst suggestion so far. That is sidegrade, or even possible downgrade in some games. 760 is only better in memory bandwidth than 660ti, processing power is less.

Save your money for the next generation! 770 does about as well as a 7970 despite it's 1.5x cost. If you read some of the news and speculation the next lineup from radeon and nvidia should actually be some seriously new an impressive upgrades, not just a money grab. Save up!
#29MaDHatPosted 8/5/2013 11:13:35 AM
That is a complete waste of money. The 660ti is still a solid card. Save your money and wait until the next generation of cards. It will be perfectly fine until then.

A side-grade is his best bet at this point to begin with....

The 760 scores very high, and more than the 660ti....
