GeForce GTX 660 Ti  vs 560 Ti 

This isn't just a game - it's a masterpiece - a very large sandbox game that rejects the quality-quantity inverse proportionality.

Hmm tough call, the 660 ti's a pretty good card but the lure of the 760 ti and the latest and greatest... I took a look for the white OC version of the 560 ti and the sources we collect data from don't have info on this card, so unfortunately I won't be able to add it, sorry Carlos.
I'm debating whether or not I should move up to a 660 ti or just wait for the 760 ti. Any chance you guys could add the galaxy white OC version of the 560 ti?
Hey Barret, I just took a look and wanted to make sure I caught any mistake. Right now we link to an Amazon seller who sells the MSI GeForce GTX 660 TI 2 GB for ~$300. I wasn't able to find an issue, would you be able to guide us in the right direction?
MSIGEFORCE GTX 660 TI The price is wrong and for the 2gb version :(
