Howdy! So my 660TI SC totally burnt out today. I took it out to dust and what not and was careful with it.. It looks burnt all around.

I'm assuming EVGA super clocked the card and it just had a short lifespan or something because of it.

Anyway, now I'm looking at cards and I really don't know what to get. A 660 TI is better than a 670 right?

What about a 760? Spec wise my 660TI SC actually out did the 760 a bit and these new cards are all expensive.

Got my 660ti SC for like $280 before... Everywhere I look a regular 660TI is like $320.

Performance wise it goes 670 > 760 > 660 ti, though the 760 and 660 ti are probably quite comparable.

Are you certain your 660 ti isnt under warranty? My Evga card has a three year warranty

If not you can get 760 for around $300 or a 270x for $270

I got my 770 GTX for a little over $300, you can get a 760 for as little as $240.

Depends on the manufacturer.. I went with the EVGA overclocked version and I got it on special with tax and shipping for $400.. been watching them for about 2months and that was the cheapest.

If you go with zotac or other brands you can maybe get it for 300-350ish...

RMA?


Return Merchandise Authorization.
Contact EVGA, tell them your card popped, and then send it in for a replacement.

EVGA cards usually have a 3 year warranty. You register the card and get a new one for free if it breaks, well maybe just shipping cost. IN your case with a 660tbeing an older card, they might not have then anymore so you might get a 760 instead. Hopefully you registered or still have a way to get a receipit if you ordered online.
