Benchmarks Real world tests of GeForce GTX 760 vs 660

Passmark Industry standard benchmark for overall graphics card performance

3DMark 11, as the name might probably suggest, makes use of the Microsoft DirectX 11 API and puts every feature of it at its disposal to use, creating astonishingly realistic visuals.
GeForce GTX 660 | by techPowerUp! (Sep, 2012)

3DMark Vantage (Texture Fill) Industry standard benchmark that tests DirectX performance

Crysis: Warhead (2013) 1920x1080 - Enthusiast Quality + 4xAA

GeForce GTX 760
49.8 fps
GeForce GTX 660
39.6 fps
Set decades after the events of Crysis 2, you wake up from a stasis pod to find long lost friend and squadmate "Psycho" who explains how C.E.L.L has virtually taken over the world by monopolizing energy production in Crysis 3.

Far Cry 3 1920 x 1080 - Ultra Quality + 4x MSAA + Enh. AtoC

In a nutshell, Far Cry 3 is everything gamers missed in Far Cry 2 (after Crytek was tossed out of the franchise by Ubisoft) and even Crysis 2 (in which Crytek swaps the tropical paradise setting for grim, apocalyptic New York).

The game is a typical, linear first-person shooter but offers a talent tree, fast paced action, and one-on-one duels with special game mechanics.

SmallLux GPU 2.0dMeasures compute performance using OpenCL to do 3D rendering The GTX 760 SmallLux score seams odd to me when the 760 is a technically better card GeForce GTX 760 228 GeForce GTX 660 5,000
will this card fit into this case http://www.amazon.com/Guardian-Black-Steel-Chassis-921RB-BL/dp/B004351H9G/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1371416318&sr=8-2&keywords=nzxt+mid+tower+case
The specs and benchmarks are collected from a variety of sources around the web (e.g. manufacturers, TechPowerUp, etc.)
