*Prices are relevant at time of purchase (27/12/13)

*Cost of card was £135.

Purchased along with all the other components here on Amazon to build a mid-range gaming machine from scratch. I've based this machine around an i5 Haswell with 8GB of 1600mhz CL9. Along with the other components in this build I think the GTX660 represents the "sweet spot" in terms of cost vs performance. I've built around a dozen PC's for my own personal use over the past 17 years, and in that time I've used ATI Rage, ATI Radeon, Matrox Mystique, 3DFX, POWER-VR and of course Nvidia Geforce 3D accelerators.

The obvious competition for the Geforce 660 is either the cheaper Radeon 7850 *(£100-£120) or the similarly priced Radeon 7870 *(£130-£160) The Geforce 660 is closer in performance to the 7870 than it is to the 7850, but they will all handle 1080p gaming at high details with most current games. On balance the 7870 is around 10% faster than the Geforce and the Geforce 660 is around 15% faster than the 7850, but there are some major differences in the way Radeon and Geforce cards are optimised for certain games. You should research online to see which card best suits the games YOU play.

Size and power requirements... this MSI version of the GTX660 is very compact which is just as well, because my case (Fractal Design Core 1000 micro ATX) only has limited internal space available. A Radeon 7870 would have been a real squeeze in this build! Also... The GTX660 only requires 1 PCI-E plug from the power supply, the 7870 requires 2 so you should check first that your PSU is up to the job. This could potentially cost more if you need to upgrade your PSU.

Bought this graphics card over a 760 due to budget. I can say I wasn't disappointed at all and don't regret not spending that little extra to get the 760. The 660 can handle all modern games I've thrown at it at full 1080p max settings. I only use this alongside Sony Vegas for video editing and does the job! Fantastic graphics card.

I cannot hear this graphics card, even when I am playing a demanding game all I hear is the hum of my case fans.

This is a great option for a quiet rig, the heatsink also does a good job and playing a demanding game it gets up to about 60c.

Coming from my previous 6870 this has given my Q6600 based rig a shot in the arm and I will not be upgrading the rest of the system for a long time yet.

All five stars because I have no issue with it. It is very performant on games with high or max* settings, even on 1080p. Averages between 50-60FPS on such games and software.

The price makes it a great value card for such power. Would recommend it for games in the 2008-2011 range, although later may not handle ultra settings. It also comes with nice extra processing features such as PhysX, CUDA (useful for rendering) and 3D display support (not tested or used, however).

If you are looking to high-end power at an affordable price, I would recommend this. If money is no issue, it may be best to investigate a later card such as the 670 or 690.

* bear in mind that "max" for me does not mean using anti-aliasing - i do not use it myself.
