Is the EVGA GTX 660 FTW version worth it?

If you play games at 1080p sure... if you play at 7680x1600 then no... It is all situational... I am goin gto assume you play games at 1080p, now the question what are you trying to compare it too? Are you asking if it is worth the extra X amount of dollars vs a reference GTX 660?

I am wondering if theres any point of going for it over the reference EVGA card, by the way im in UK so use amazon or ebuyer or overlockers.co.uk #

My budget is £165 but i will go £175 for the ftw if theres a point

idc if amd or nvidia

Thanks for replying
 
If you don't mind overclocking yourself (very easy all you have to do is move the core clock offset slider ) then just get the cheapest one with a decent after market cooler on it. These two are the cheapest i found on amazonUK.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/MSI-NVIDIA-GTX660-PCI-E-Graphics/dp/B0099AOAP8/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1358446293&sr=8-7

EDIT: And the cheapest out of any UK site listed in this thread (I went back and checked :) ).
 


You could do that... it will be slightly louder and run a bit warmer. But if you have bad case airflow I would get the stock blower either way...

Personally I would fork over the extra £7.50 and get the better cooled card, would make overclocking it and keeping it at good temps easier... Unless of course like i said - you have bad case airflow.

I think Im going for the FTW version as apparently it has better cooling, i have very good airflow (corsair 200r)

Thanks for all the help!
