Still highly tempted. It's not super necessary, there should be a better deal soon right? I feel like my Zotac GTX 460 has been getting louder lately, and it's also not as cool when idled, but meh. Sucks, ever since I reformatted MSI afterburner wont display on my Logitech G15 so I can't fully monitor my usage right now.

Was originally $220AR and after a couple days they fixed the price to be $240

For what it's worth, I have an MSI GTX 560 Ti TwinFrozr, and while the fan and card were fantastic for the first year and a half, when it started getting cold this past fall (November maybe) one of the twinfrozr's fans started making an awful grinding noise that goes away as the card warms up (takes several minutes some times).
I've been oiling\repairing PC cooling fans for over a decade to fix similar problems, yet this one is a nightmare to get into. Look it up online... MSI uses a very odd "power logic" fan that has a sealed back that must be cracked open to lubricate the bearing , and in the case of the twinfrozr, it has a special y-splitter wiring harness for the two fans, making the fan connection itself proprietary. This means, the fans are not only extremely troublesome to repair, they are expensive to replace, since the basically only have one source (power logic, in China) and cannot easily be replaced with something else.
Even though my card suits my needs, I'm looking to fix it somehow and then sell it and get something with a more reliable and more conventional fan setup. I was planning on keeping this card long-term (I used to upgrade once or twice per year) but I know that before long the other fan will start grinding too, and I just don't want to worry about it.
They have been using these fans for the GTX 400 and 500 series TwinFrozr cards. The GTX 660 seems to be using a slightly different model of fan, but it is still a power logic and seems to be similarly hard to replace\repair should it ever go bad. Its really too bad... this card runs very quiet and cool, and overclocks quite well. Time will tell if the 660's fans last any longer than the previous ones, but I figured I'd mention this. Those in warmer climates may not be affected by this either.

Even though now, I have a new motherboard and new computer and processor, I just don't feel like dealing with that again . It was depressing and frustrating
Would totally take Bioshock Infinite and Tomb Raider over that in game currency stuff.

|BGRT||GTX 660 is roughly equivalent to the 7850 on average which is at the 160-170 range. Pricewise, all the 6xx NVIDIA cards above the 650 Ti only makes sense right now if you have a moderate to strong preference for NVIDIA.|

How great of a deal do you think this is? I'm not too desperate for an upgrade, but I'd like to upgrade just for the hell of it. Right now I just own a Zotac GTX 460 2GB. (Never even got my rebate -_-). Also I only have a 550W PSU right now.
12V1 12V2 are 18A
I read that it only needs 1 6 pin connector, i'm not too savvy with PSU's, but does the 12v1 and 12v2 mean that each 6 pin connector is only 18A? I have 2 6 pins right now, just trying to see if my PSU would be sufficient

I can tell you this much...
-460 is close to 465, I've owned a 460
-my 560 Ti was a nice speed bump over 460
-my 580 let me comfortablely play BF3 and was a significant improvement over the 560 to
-660 is very close to 580
-660 is 140ish watts, powers up to 4 Monitors, has much lower power consumption in 2d with a multi Mon setup @nd will be very quiet.
Iirc the 465 is loud, hot, has less vram, and eats power all day. Not to mention sli headaches.
Try to sell your cards for $75 each and your only out $50. Hardforum or overclock.net are great sites for this. Make sure to sign up for and use heatware.
