GTX 660 ti or 670?

Ok so I'm trying to pick out a graphics card for a new computer I'm getting and I do not know what is the best choice. I'm in between getting a nivida GTX 660 ti or the GTX 670 both superclocked. Iv been trying to find comparisons of the two but all I found is that the 660 Ti is just a striped down 670. So is it worth getting one 670 which is an extra 200 or just get the 660 possibly two of them. By the way I'm just looking for a decent computer that will just be able to run most of the games out now and at least last me a bit. Thank you.

What are your current system specs and OS?

Where are you buying from?

Difference in price between 660 Ti 2GB and 670 2GB is only around $50-$100, depending on the brand/model.
If you're looking at a 670 4GB, then those are around $150 more than 660 Ti 2GB.
But for single display setups, you really shouldn't need 4GB.

Look here for reference model spec comparisons.
GTX 660 Ti 2GB | GTX 670 2GB

Look here for performance comparisons.

I was looking at the 660 ti 2GB and trying to figure out if buying two of those would be better or worse then just getting one GTX 670 4GB. The CPU is a INtel Core i7 quad-core 3.60GHz. 16GB of Corsair Vengeance RAM. And ASUS P9x79 LE Intel x79 Motherboard. ( http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/system/Mega_Special_IV/ ) Its this computer only changing the RAM and graphics card. These are just the specs i was looking at, not sure if im gonna buy it from here, need to check prices elsewhere and see if i can get individual parts cheaper. Also gonna most likely be running Windows 7 Home Premium.

I guess it depends on what resolution you're running at, I have a 660ti 2GB and it runs everything at atleast 60 FPS, even more demanding games like BF3 etc. My monitor's 1680x1050 though.

2 660ti's will beat a 670 but if you think you need the 4GB 670 you should probably get the 3GB 660Tis if you want to get 2 660Tis

I'm running a 660 Ti on a dual monitor 1920*1080 setup, playing my games on one screen and watching youtube i.e. on the other.
At least 60+FPS on all games I have, including CoD:Blackops 2.

I certainly wouldn't spend the extra $269 for the GTX670 4GB versus the GTX660Ti 2GB that comes with the standard package you're looking at from that site.

I have both and I say go ahead and get the 670 if the price is right. the 660ti usually suffers much worse compared to the 670 when using aa especially in demanding games.

I would recommend the 670, or if you want to go AMD, the 7950 is a great equivalent.
