Default GeForce GTX 660

I am trying to deiced on weather I should purchase a Galaxy GeForce GTX 660 Ti GC 3GB for $289.97

Or a eVGA GeForce GTX 660 3GB for $249.97

both prices are minus $20.00 rebate and the Galaxy is on sale at almost $100.00 off the regular price.

The specs are almost the same as far as I can tell. Is the Galaxy worth the extra scratch?

If anyone has some knowledge on these cards.. that would be helpful.

We have a Galaxy rep here on the boards, so that means something to me at least.

I haven't personally purchased yet, but I haven't heard any complaints either.

Who has the longest warranty?

If you have the funds for the extra $40 I would go for the Ti. If not, then wait out for a better sale on a 600 non-Ti.

Definitely the 660 Ti GC. It's a killer deal at that price with about 40% more performance than the 660. The overclock potential should also be leaps and bounds beyond the 660 SC.
