after reviewing 660 aggregate benchmark scores

and comparing to my 550ti
LINK

this would be a substantial upgrade for me and its Performance/$ ratio of >21.00 is damn sexy

I would take that $100 for your 550ti and run with it. Those things are worth around $60-80 right now used

that # dropped real quick when we began seriously negotiating

might just take $60

get the $180 660 with the free $50 game (which i woulda bought anyways prob)

basically doubling my GPU power for $70 out of pocket

If you aren't from Europe/UK sort of hard to get in.

I'm sure I can get you in though. What username/email are you using? Send it to me on Skype/Steam.

I think those are for 1440p, though so I'm sure 1080p will be a lot lower

I'm definitely going to need to get another 7970 before I play it.

It's alright I generally stay way behind on games anyway. Older games are cheaper. Only reason I have played tomb raider and Bioshock Infinite were because they came with my AMD card. I don't usually mind waiting a while for prices to go down and everyone to review it for me.

Has anyone used the blue snowball mic before? They're pretty decent price and look good. They have good reviews online

I've had a Blue Yeti mic for years and have nothing but good to say about it. It's a higher end mic but Blue seems to be a good brand. I got it from C&M music store for around $150. I bought it to record my brass instrument playing and some guitar and vocals, but I also use it for regular stuff like skype and in-game chat.

Are they the same people that make the blue snowball? The black one is real tempting for $67.50

Get a real condensor mic.

I have an audio-technica for like 110.. dont really remember. The only thing you have to buy a passive amp to supply power, that was around 30. So it turned out to be a 150 dollar investment.
