The GTX 1660 TI is here!

Recommended Posts

I may actually consider buying the GTX 1660 TI, simply because I still have my GTX 960 2GB from March 2015. I primarily use 1080p, 60-144fps, for my current gaming rig. Any thoughts? I think the $280 price tag, meets my price-range, I didn't want to spend more than $300 unless it was GTX 1070ti during the past Black Friday sales, which I ended up missing most of, unfortunately.

My current PC build specs can be found on PCPartPicker!

Its performance rank it between the 1070 and the 1070ti. If it is the same/better value as/than the 1070, no reason not to go for it. However if it is not an emergency buy, I would highly recommend saving some money for a 1080ti. Mid-range graphic cards are great but a poor choice for future-proofing.

Yeah, I'd need to buy practically a whole to computer. CPU, Motherboard, RAM, etc. Definitely planned in my next build.

Eh, I mean, I usually keep GPU for about 3 years before I replace them. It's nearly 4 now. I was thinking buying 1070TI.

Truth be told, I will likely be sticking to 1080p X 60fps-144fps gaming for another 5 years.

Also to add, I want to play games like Skyrim/Fallout4, with texture mods, etc. But I struggle to get a stable 60fps with my 2GB card, despite how powerful it is...

I would also recommend keeping an eye out on this subreddit, there are some pretty amazing deals rather often. (here defaulted to look for GPUs, remove the search arguments for all parts.)
