GPU question

How good of a deal is this?
I have been prepping for my build looking around at cards and I was wondering if this is a deal I need to jump on? I am only running at 1080 with my monitor and 60 mhz so anything I got capable of more would be just for future proofing really. The benchmarks I read on this puts me around there with max settings.

Forgot to mention there is a promo for this that will take it to around $185.

re: GPU question
thats not even close to the cheapest that card has been. I personally wouldn't buy a zotac. I would buy evga, asus, gigabyte, or even msi before I bought a zotac, unless it was an absolute steal which this is not.

re: GPU question
If you're looking I have a 660ti I'll sell you.

This is it.

That price is $50 over MSRP

re: GPU question
That's the one I have. It's $300 MSRP and aftermarket 660ti's are like $280-$320. Idk man, what would be fair for you?

re: GPU question
Not a bad deal. I also have to figure out if the 660 is what I want. I like the 660ti also and I think the 670 may be overkill for what my monitor can produce anyway. I havnt even looked hard a radeons yet.

re: GPU question
I wouldn't buy Zotac.

This Galaxy has a higher core clock than that Zotac for the same price right now.

This Super Clocked EVGA is only $15 more and it's a better card

re: GPU question
Radeon 7850/7870 or 660ti are far better than the 660 and are around the price of the one you linked

No way you can find a 660Ti for $185. Cheapest I see them is $235 but yea I would pay the difference for the Ti over the 660.

re: GPU question
Most ti's I have seen are $250+. Ill prob still pay the difference. I just think the 670 will be overkill for me.

That isn't the Ti.

Regular 660 which has like 400 less CUDA cores.
