After a few hours of testing the card and running benchmarks what did we finally come up with to say about MSI’s latest greatest GeForce GTX card? Well for starters the card ran no hotter than 59C under the full load of FurMark’s performance benchmark that throttles the card to insane loads in order to see how hot it gets under worse case scenarios. Any of the GTX series of cards works well in Photoshop with only a slight difference in the rendering speed with the 660 versus the Ti Edition so it is still very viable in that department.
As far as gaming goes at resolutions of 1920X1080 the card played fairly well with all the settings set to their maximum visual best, but for some any framrates dropping below 60 are not feasible and for that crowd the Ti is a better solution as the 660 hovered in the upper 40s to mid 50s range in most games. All games were totally playable and looked great and at higher resolutions of 2560X1440 the Twin Frozr GTX 660 did fairly well also, running in the low 40s and mid 30s in our testing. The card is made to compete with the 7750 and will come to market at around $229.00 arriving on shelves as you read this review. With its low power requirements and gaming and work performance as well as running almost slilent I think the GeForce GTX 660 series will be a hit with budget gamers worldwide. At the end of the day MSI's Twin Frozr GTX Overclocked 660 is the best priced card in NVIDIA’s GTX lineup and for the price point it is set at it deserves our Editor’s Choice Award as many an NVIDIA gaming fan will be buying this card.
