    just sold EVGA SC GTX 580 for $265
    then bought MSi N660GTX-Ti PE/OC for $300...

    not much of an upgrade but I was in the mood to do so.
    I was ordering parts for a upgrade/repair for a personal friend of mine
    and got caught up in the moment....

    oh well, I guess I'll be having pics upon it's arrival.

    Well worth doing with so little money in between. Less power consumption and less noise together with a newer architecture. :)

    I guess the only thing you're losing out on is bandwidth, which might not matter if you're only going for 1080p.

    I know, I have been studying reviews / benches / charts and it seems that it's not an issue and especially not at 1080p.
    also it seems the 660Ti is a performance step up from the GTX 580, albeit only one tier it seems.

    but right on 'mkk' with the efficiency and gaming on the new arc...

    with the developing drivers for the new arc and the GTX 580 being maxed out (more than likely) from any more boost from driver support
    the few games now that the 580 wins in: Crysis Warhead and Skyrim, the 660-Ti might eventually perform better in those as well.

    at least that's what I'm banking on here, developing and maturing drivers for Kepler..

    From what I know of you so far, I feel like you'll have replaced it with a GTX7 series long before it matters :D

    Without the Battlefeild 4 Beta Access.

    [​IMG]

    A Razer Blackwidow Ultimate... To replace the Cyborg V.7 Keyboard (Despite the website says the drivers support windows 8) could not get the board to work... Drivers installed ok, The Keyboard Lights up as though everything looks as though it works... But Not A Single key would work....

    Looks like the Cyborg v.7 is going onto ebay very soon.
