Is The GTX 660 Ti Still Worth Buying?

3469 ratings | 146416 views
Selling anywhere between $60 and $100 on the used market, Nvidia's GTX 660 Ti may seem like a tempting proposal, but is it worth buying one as part of a slightly older or budget orientated gaming PC? Today we're going to find out. Released in 2012, the 660 Ti filled a gap in Nvidia's Kepler lineup, offering mid range enthusiasts a way to play their favourite games with respectable settings and not breaking the bank. Over three years and at way less than half it's original cost, it'll be interesting to see if this thing has stood the test of time. Today we tested Fallout 4, Grand Theft Auto V, Battlefield 1 and Far Cry Primal. Our test setup included an i5 4460, 8GB of Ram and of course a 2GB EVGA GTX 660 Ti SC Super Clocked edition graphics card. Thanks for watching :)

GTA V map was needlessly long. and the hell loading screen was ass. far cry primal was released later and plays better than GTA V

with this card, you can play all games on 1080p with high or medium graphics, sooo why do you spend more thousands dollars for only ultra 4k? I think the card is good if it can play all games on good graphics with no DAMN lag soooo, yeah!
Murtaza Rizvi (3 months ago)
i think medium settings is also good. also most of the settings are caused by those blur, bloom and post-effects

Benchmark the Witcher 3
Thundertracker (9 months ago)
As an Asus GTX 660ti OC owner, I do agree with those benchmarks. I can also add that Crysis 3 runs playable on ultra (not butter smooth 60fps but I did finish the game on ultra) and watch dogs saw the ocasionnal freeze on ultra, dialing back a notch fixed it though

If you going to buy one don't bue EVGA one's! Most people who sell them do because of thermal problems as EVGA cards get somehow broken I bought one and can't exceed 60 fps in any game because then the cards get too hot up to 100c! Even after a good clean up and new thermal paste... I thought it was only mine but found out a lot of people have the same issue so if you're going to get the 660ti try to avoid EVGA brand! Card is solid though for all games, nearly identical performance as gtx 1050ti but obviously 1050ti can get better frames on some games due to 660ti is old now and game developers don't focus on optimizing the games on older gpu's as on the new ones.

I still have this card in my main PC. I am so surprised on how well this card is aging. Paired with my i5 4690k processor I am running heavily modded Fallout 4 on very high settings and godrays on low at 60fps and other AAA titles on high settings with 60-55fps no problem. With how cheap you can find some used cards I highly recommended running SLI it is pretty overkill but the 660ti alone is very good.

Just got one of these for about £44. Overclocked it to about ~1305mhz and it smashes WoW and Overwatch so I'm happy :P (Ps. It hardly ever tops 50c and its the Asus Direct Du II model)

What do you think about Geforce GT 635M 2gb? And i know this will be an idiotic question but, can i upgrade a laptop?
STICKY GLUE (1 year ago)
It depends on the games you are going to play. The GTX 660 TI 2GB easily runs most games on High/Ultra that are optimised very well. From MGSV (Highest), Overwatch (Highest), Dark Souls 3 (Highest), Alien: Isolation (Highest), Nier: Automata (Highest), Resident Evil 7 (High, except for textures, the game requires HUGE amounts of VRAM for those, up to 4GB for Medium and 8GB for High). So if you can get one cheap, and you don't want to play top of the line super fancy games, then getting one is worth it. And just to be clear, i am saying this from my personal experience on an 10 year old CPU (Q6600) and DDR2 4 GB RAM, so the CPU is heavily bootlenecking the card at this point because the GPU usage never gets past 40-50%. But if you want to be future proof or just get something better and you have money to spare, get a 1060, or better yet wait for 1060 TI if it is going to be released, just be sure to grab the 6GB version, there is no point on buying the 3GB version at all.

Jean Le Roux (2 years ago)
I have two 660ti's - both overclocked. Despite the vram disadvantage, I still get better performance than a gtx 970 (given the games support SLI). I'd say it's still very much capable!

2 months late, but yes the 660ti is worth using. It will easily smash 1080p gaming.
Felipe (2 years ago)
still much better than a console, pc's are a good investment over time, the money you save with Steam sales and not having to pay live/psn totally worth it the end.
Rui Marques (2 years ago)
I have the GTX 660 TI windforce OC edition and i overclock it using MSI afterburner. I play GTA V at Very high and its the smoothest gameplay I've ever encountered. I have an old AMD A-10 5800k processor... the trick with GTA V is that when you start the game Alt + Tab, then open task manager, select GTA V, go to details, and then set it's priority to high. yea.. My GTX 660 Ti is such a beast. if I could find myself another one in south Africa for 70$, or around that I'd get 2 of em and do a triple SLI

I think it should be mentioned that an OC can improve performance as well. an extra 100MHz on the core and 300 on memory could get the minimums into the 40s-50s and averages into fifties-sixties. Stock performance is a good thing to measure but I kinda wish you'd overclock as well. even just moving the voltage and power limit sliders in MSi AfterBurner all the way to the right could increase performance.

How do you feel about the 4GB GTX 960?
