760, 660 or 660ti?

I'm upgrading from a 6950 which I've had major problems with due to micro stutter on various games that subsequent drivers haven't fixed. I've come to the point where I'm going to jump ship to nvidia so I was excited with the release of the Gtx 700 series.

However it has only shown mild improvements over the 600 series at a much costlier price so I thought about getting the 660ti or even the 660 since they offer the same performance. So I wanted to ask people on here which card should I get.

Gtx 760 for £220
660ti OC for £170
660 OC for £160

I want to play at 1080p resolution with some AA and AF at a smooth frame rate for the best bang for the buck.

£220 for the 760 IMO is too expensive. If you look around, you could probably pick one up around £180-£200 range.

I know one of Nvidia's biggest partner is actually selling a 760 OC with a full size PCB and blower type cooler on their online store for just 209.99 euro.

You could fingers-cross for OcUK to put the KFA2 760 with custom cooler on deal for £199.99 again.

If you want the best bang for the buck, out off the 3 the 760 won't give you that.

Go with the best you can reasonably afford.

Or get a non-overclocked 660Ti for half way between 660 and 660Ti prices.

660ti is a great card for 1080p :)

In most new games 660ti is only 1 frame behind the 670.

There is a couple of games where 660ti can struggle with high aa but for £170 I think it's a great deal.
