hi all i am new here in the forums but i watch regularly the motherboards_org videos in you tube ! well i want your advice on what graphics card should i buy
... i have 3 in mind ...
1st....Zotac GF GTX 660Ti AMP! Extreme Edition 2GB DDR5
2nd...Asus GF GTX660 TI-DC2T-2GD5 PCIE 3
and
3ed...GigaByte GF GTX660Ti, 3GB, PCI-E 3.0
i want professional opinions !
at first i was going for asus because its shame brand as my mother board
and had 1 of the best base and boost clock speed... but then i found the zotac that had even better...!!! so you will ask me "why the GigaByte?"..its because of the "3 Giga" now the games as crisis 3 require more ram and in the future they will require even more.. so 1 extra Giga is worthy of sacrificing clock speed??? please tell me your opinion and your suggestions ... olso you can show me another card that have them all in one + i would like it to be silent because i have my pc right next to me on my desk ;) ... my budget is 300-400 euros! ps... i would also like to have a monitor program in the box like EVGA asus and gigabyte have... so i can easily adjust my settings ... also i have an G19 keyboard so EVGA's monitor program had a display in my keyboard showing all the details wen i was in the game ... very cool ... i would like my next card to have sum-thing like that ...if you ask...
" why you don't get the evga 660 ti 3gb card ?"
its because of the low clock speed...
well that is all thanks for reading such a big post and hopefully thanks for replying !!! :D

( i have the MAXIMUS V FORMLA...i7_3770k...8 GB OF dominator RAM ...gs800W...and a gtx 550ti EVGA that i want to replace..)

You pay $50 extra for the 1GB, the only slower card is the Asus with no extra memory to show for it:

So if you are thinking of getting 1GB extra, you pay $50 extra. And forget Asus. As simple as that.

Yep, that is the GTX660_TIDC2O2GD5 in my comparison, my bad.

However, no matter who you ask, the difference in framerates is 1 or 2 at best between them. The extra 1GB memory is not very useful given the 192bit bus is already struggling to keep 2GB filled at full speed. If anything, did you notice the factory 10% memory overclock on the Zotac?

Yes, for bragging rights it's nice to have the Asus.
