so atm I have got a old 460 GTX.
Been looking for a upgrade sadly I have fallen out of touch with the GPUs.
I'm mainly looking to play wildstar and a few other games mainly any good FPS.

Been looking to upgrade to a 660GTX but wondering what difference the Maxwell tech means that's on the 750Ti's, Or is it worth waiting?

Cheers

humm from what it looks like the 660GTX works better, was wondering if that "25% more performance than previous-generation cards" made up for that.

The 660 GTX does provide better performance and if this is your primary concern then for the moment it is the better choice.

You also might want to consider the AMD R7-265 as this averages about 19% performance lead over the 750Ti and costs £110-130 or if you spend a little extra you can get a R7-270.
