    Now here's the deal:

    I currently run 2x460 1GB in SLI, I could get a 660 non-ti for 200€ or 660 TI for 279€.

    The old 460's would sell used for around 150-160€ for both.

    Now I'm trying to debate if I should change, and to which if I do. Performance wise they aren't a big of an update, but I'd run the same amount of power with half the power consumption and without the hassle of SLI.

    I don't really wan't to go over the 300€ mark if there aren't really good reasons for it. What should I do?

    Now is the time to change, sell the 460's while you still can fetch reasonable cash from them. Plus id say go with a GTX680 or GTX670 you wont be disappointed, the GTX660TI is good too.
    Inioch says thanks.

    I should probably also say, that I can't really go too much over the 300€ mark, which puts 670 and 680 too pricey for me. 670's go for around 400€ and 680's over 500€.

    I don't want to spend that much on a card.

    If that's your budget, get the TI now and SLI later if you need more performance.

    Then the GTX660TI should be fine, then i don't see any point in getting a GTX660 while you can afford a GTX660TI.

    It's mostly about getting the maximum amount of power with the minimum amount of money :) So if the jump up to TI warrants the extra 80€, then I'm fine with it. I'm just not sure about it being that.

    Went ahead and bought the Asus GTX660 TI (non overclocked) for 279€. Now I just need to sell the 460's.
