I'm wondering which of these two GPU's will be a better run for the value.

I'm pretty sure the 570 has a lot better performance

c) GTX 660 Ti. It's only ~$40 more than a GTX 570, and smashes it in every way (performance, power, temps, noise).

Wait, does my Mobo have to support PCI-E 3.0??

If it's too expensive, then I recommend a HD 7850 as it offers relatively the same performance as the 570, however uses nearly half the amount of power and runs cooler.

Nope. PCI-E is backwards compatible. Just as long as you have at least one PCI-E 2.0 x16 slot on your motherboard, it will work great.

Shouldn't really matter though it's an AMD :wink:

For a value case it's alright, however for an additional $25 ($75 overall) you can get something a lot better. However if you want to save some money, then stick with it.

What would you recommend?

Remember that, to get full performance out of the GTX 660Ti, you will need a PCI-e 3.0 and Ivy Bridge processor.
