That is my card.

Looking at the bench the GTX 660ti blows it out of the water in most games...I was surprised...by how bad. My current card is barely below a GTX 570...but, GTX 580 is vastly superior.

Rest of my specs are i5 3570k oced @ 4.0ghz
8gb 2133mhz ram
700watt ultra psu, etc.

I chose the GTX 660ti because its a major power saver, and I'm not looking to oc, so the bandwidth isn't a concern.

What do you guys think? Just save money and keep my current card, or sell it and try buying a GTX 660ti?

My brother made this step. The comparison would've been as if you went from a 560TI to a 580, or thereabouts, not to mention the power saving. The increase in performance is definitely noticeable on his rig, an i7-3770k and 16GB RAM.
