    in the name of Ti

    Ti... what is it?

    Are Ti overclocked (from factory)?

    If I see those numbers (for 660Ti):
    (Base clock) 915
    (Boost clock) 980
    (CUDA) 1344
    Does it mean it's not overclocked?

    Problem is when I review video cards, there are different numbers between different manufactures. So, I look the numbers from nVidia website, that would be non-oc, right?

    Is 660Ti in naive 19201080? I have two 23" HD monitors.

    Lastly, 660Ti should be a good card? This new build is going to be sortof my last build (and for my use), I want a good "future-proof" video card. I only play one HD game, but that game keeps up with new technology. All my kids are into laptops.

    Re: in the name of Ti

    The main difference is that Ti edition cards have more stream processors than their non-Ti counterparts. In the case of the 660, the Ti version has 1344 cores while the standard edition has 960. Also, the standard 660 supports 2-way SLI while the Ti version can do 3-way. Both will be able to handle 1920x1080 and higher on up to 4 displays.

    The card you list above is running at reference non-OC clocks. If you're looking for an overclocked card to get more bang for your buck I'd highly recommend one of our own GC edition cards, which also have quite a few other custom improvements:

    As far as future proofing goes, it just depends on how much you want to spend. Both cards are really good values at their respective price points, will be able to run any current game on really nice settings in 1080p, and SLI very well giving you some upgrade options later on if your board supports it.

    The Ti version is great for SLI and I would recommend such a setup to anyone without hesitation, but in my own personal experience the non-Ti version really blew me away with its relative SLI performance. In my own testing, the performance gap actually did close a good bit between the two GPUs when SLI was enabled; a single 660 Ti was about 30% faster than a single 660, but a pair of 660 Tis were about 15% faster than a pair of 660s. The Ti version was still appreciably faster in both instances, but for the price a pair of 660s is a tough deal to beat too. Another thing to note, however, is that (also in my own testing) the 660 Ti GC I tested was considerably more overclockable, even to the point of outrunning a stock 670. That's something worth considering if you like to OC.

    As to which is best for you, it really just depends on what you want out of your system and how much you're willing to spend. The 660 Ti offers the benefits of more speed, more OC potential, the choice of a 3GB version (essential for multi-display gaming), and the option for 3-way SLI if you're interested in that level of expansion. The 660 on the other hand is much cheaper, has extremely good SLI scaling (max 2-way), and requires very little power (just one 6-pin per card). It's up to you which best suits your needs, but either GPU is a really good choice right now for SLI.

    If you're considering an upgrade, I'd highly recommend one of our GC edition cards with heavily improved PCB design and cooling:
    Galaxy GTX 660 GC
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...Graphics-Cards
    Galaxy GTX 660 Ti GC 2GB (this card is an insanely good deal today, BTW, 10% off w/promo code)
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...Graphics-Cards
    Galaxy GTX 660 Ti GC 3GB
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...Graphics-Cards

    Hope this answers all your questions.

    Re: in the name of Ti

    the ti video cards has more performance than the non-ti card....therefore the 660 ti is faster than the no-ti..agree with above thread , the ti usually has more stream processors, but i just wonder if that has allways been the case...seems like some ti cards are just overclocked, but i may be wrong

    At least since nV has resurrected the Ti branding (5xx series), all Ti cards have had more stream processors. Many are also factory overclocked, but the main reason for the Ti/non-Ti distinction has always been stream processors.

    If you're talking about the the Ti 4200 days, then I'm not entirely sure what the difference was. That was back in the time before unified shader architectures, so it could have been shader/vertex pipelines, or simply clock speed. At the very least, nV's intentions in resurrecting the branding were to invoke memories of those days!
