I don't mind the blue PCB at all, but that cooler looks utterly horrendous on that PCB.

Performance wise, it looks to be competing with the 7950. The Unigine result was surprising though.

The price is a big let down as well. It's so close to a 670, is there even a point to a 660 ti and for that matter a 680. What are Nvidia doing?

I'm still going for the GTX 670 I think. In some games (that I will play a lot) the GTX 670 still performs 10fps better than the 660ti.

I do not like the cooler at all. If its expected to come at £270, a 670 is worth going for. The 660ti should more closer to the £200 mark than the £300

I'm with you in this argument. I think the 660Ti isn't worth it over the 650Ti when it's released, but can't really compete a lot with the GTX 670. At skyrim the GTX 670 even beats the 660Ti with 30fps.

pointless card it seems... cost the same as a 7950 here.. so the 7870 competitor will be the 550ti ?
Edit: just checked, the 7950 is €10 cheaper..also the newer ones have even higher speeds for people who don't clock themselves. And it's ugly xd and that comes from a gigabyte fan..

So it is going to be £20-£30 more than a 7950? Seems a bit pointless to me tbh
