When I built my PC I had a 660Ti so I bought another one for SLI. We got our bonus at work this week so I bought a Dell U2713HM, open box for $410. Now that my framerates are halved, games where I struggle to maintain 60 FPS I notice the microstutter a lot more now.

I can step up one of my 660Tis to a 780 for $400, and give my other to a friend. Originally I was just going to wait for the 880 series, but I can probably get one of those with a tax refund.

I know my performance will pretty much be the same, if not a little lower, but it should feel smoother right?

Another thing, I spend 75% of my time playing games that aren't ultra demanding, but I do like to get big games every now and then.

780 will give you better frame rates because of the 660 ti's bandwidth issues.
You still love to hate me.
