3GB EVGA 660ti FTW+

Hey,
Was wondering if there was a review for the 3GB EVGA 660ti cheesecake+ card yet anywhere, i can't seem to find one?
Also any other cards that come close to this one in terms of the performance for the price?
Thanks

This is, however for the non-Ti version. This is virtually the same card however.

I can't see how it's worth spending that kind of money on a 660Ti, even a super duper version, when for a very small amount more you can just get a 670.

Also lol at F.T.W. - cheesecake bittech autocorrect

Well the non-Ti doesn't really benefit from having 3GB..... surely a second hand 670 or even a 7950 would be better?

Can't you get free postage because of bit-tech? Could save you 16.64.

Free delivery from bit-tech for a start which saves 16.64.

Second there 's the same CPU-RAM-MoBo as a bundle in the today only deals for 299.99 which, based on your basket, will save you 12.64. You could save a further 8.40 by taking the bundle which has slower timings on the RAM (11-11-11-30 instead of 9-9-9-24, which in general use/gaming you will never, ever notice).

Third, is the H60 really needed? Are you pushing the overclock to very high levels? The H55 would save another 9-ish or the CM Seidon would save 14.98.

That's a potential 52.66 to play with depending on what you do. Not saying it's not a great build already, it is, just always like to see people get the most that they can.

This is what I came up with

- 670 F.T.W. GPU.
- hybrid modualr Corsair PSU.
- virtually the same cooler
- Better SSD
- 88.20(after taking off the carriage costs) remaining to choose a better case (e.g. Carbide 300R/Fractal Arc Mini etc.)

Just my 2pence worth making the most of today only offers. These guys will be able pick that build apart and see if you can get even more possibly.

EDIT - Even though you can hardly read it thanks to a pants crop/upload lol.

Wow! Thanks a bunch, thats a hell of alot better than i was getting, for the same price, i think i might stick with the zalman z9+ however, i've heard nothing but amazing reviews about it, and for the price there's not much that can beat it i guess the 670 is alot better than the 660ti

I'd stretch a little further and go for the Carbide 300R, its a much better case for just over a tenner more.
