    MSI's GeForce GTX 660 lineup consists of a pair of custom-design graphics cards that take advantage of the company's trusty TwinFrozr III cooling solution. The series consists of a base-model, clocked at 980/1033/6008 MHz (core/Boost/memory), and an OC variant, clocked at 1033/1098/6008 MHz. The base model is priced at US $239, with the OC version going for $259. Based on the 28 nm GK106 silicon, the GPU packs 960 CUDA cores and a 192-bit wide memory interface, holding 2 GB of memory.

    At $230, it is an ok value. Most notably, it is already september now. At $260, these are a rip off compared to what is already available. $260 MSI?? This is NOT a Lightning, Hawk, or any other special edition. O/C is rather weak as well.

    It's N660GTX Twin Frozr 2GD5/OC $239 on Newegg, not sure what all that fuzz is about since that's just $10 than the non OC'ed cards and $10 cheaper than most other OC cards.

    It's the highest clocking 660 on the Egg, together with a gigabyte card.

    Also, MOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAR MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEgaHuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurtzz are useless in that regard if you read Wizz's review:


    So.. at $10 over the regular 660's I'd consider that, a steal.

    MSI Guy,

    Wizzard posted the card at $260. A full $30 over the standard 660 so that is where I got that from. Wasn't aware it was $240 instead.
    I wasn't bashing the MSI's O/C capability, but instead the 660s in general. Of all the aftermarket card designs, twin frozrs are still my favorite. Overclocking on a Hawk HD 7870 is epic!
    neliz says thanks.
