My buddy is looking for a new gpu, and newegg has a sale, he was thinking about getting the 660, maybe you guys know of something better?

660 ti should be the nvidia you look for in that price range, or maybe a 760 on a really good sale. The amd 200 range should be a 7950 but they're super inflated right now. A 7870 ghz is a good card for the 150$ range though.

I should add I am not saying 660 TIs are all over the place at 200$, but they probably should be.

Is the 7870 better than 660?

You can get the new R9 270X for about the same price as the 7870 GHz with a higher stock clock and mantle.

Mantle works with 7870, and 7870 is usually a lot cheaper than 270x.

7870XT, 7950, 7970, and 670 hit $200 sometimes. If not, 660Ti, 760, or 7870.

Before you buy the R9 270x google R9 270x flicker and click the link to AMD forum.

Get the R9 270 instead of the 270X since you can easily overclock it to match the X version and save money at the same time.
