    Don't waste your money, go for a 7850 or 7870 they're a lot faster.

    It can be had for $175 every day, $154 if you act fast.

    At stock they're neck and neck but 7850 scales better if you're an overclocker, more bandwidth too.

    The radeons have been dropping in price. Amazon usually ends up price-matching a lot of the better newegg deals. I'm assuming you're not in the US?

    Georgia in Europe? In that case, I'm not sure why you are even asking here... the majority of the users here are from the US and the rest are from probably Australia, Canada and the UK. I imagine the US price of the 660 could hit $175 but we know squat about the Georgia market.

    i ask here about amazon ... cause we have service which allows us to get items from USA .... but if item will cost more then 178$ we have to pay 18% tax ... that is a reason why i aim for 660 for 175$ .... now everything is clear i hope ....



    i'm asking you guys about GPUs , CPUs and e.c.t ... cause in my country 99% people only know that GTX are for gaming .... Brand and model does not matter ... so here and on Russian forums .. people are more helpful and can give better advice .....


    (sorry for my English and thank you ) :p

    I see. In that case, there are a few websites to help you track down prices. I use slickdeals and a certain camel website but dealcatcher and fatwallet are big ones too. If you check often or use a price alert it can tell you when prices are lower than that.

    The problem is that a lot of these low prices include rebate, which would not help you.

    I am sure the 7850 2gb will be under 170 without rebate very soon. Not so sure about the GTX660 because nVidia is higher priced. I believe it would hit 175 but with rebates. 7870 has been hitting $180 with rebate so within a month we should see a $178 or lower price without rebate. I would also check the Hot deals forum; if you see a price that is good on newegg, submit a pricecheck to amazon. They may match it for a little bit.

    I would consider the 7870; with the newest drivers, it is faster than the GTX 660 and ties the GTX 660 Ti in performance, especially in BF3.

    Recent drivers nearly eliminated the performance difference between the two brands in Battlefield. Overall I think you'll like the 7850 just as much, and in my opinion it's more likely to drop under the $178 price. Also if there is a performance difference, a nice overclock can possibly eliminate it. I'm a little doubtful you'll get a deal like this for the 660, but for black Friday and cyber Monday it might happen. Keep an open eye and hopefully something pops up.

    thank you all ....

    Yes . Sadly rebate won't help me ... and i'm waiting for 23 to catch 660 or 7850 2Gb .... i'm asking cause if it is pointless to wait 10 days for even what will not even happen ... then i will get cheaper card now and save some time .... but i see there is a chance to get GTX 660 for 175$ or at least 7850 . so i decided to wait till 23 November ;)

    Best of luck to you! Keep an eye on warehouse deals too if those are available to you and hopefully you'll find something!
