Are you in the market for a new video card? Are you also looking forward to the release of Borderlands 2? Then does Nvidia have a deal for you.
The graphics card manufacturer announced today that their mid-range 600 series GPU, the 660 Ti, is now available. The card comes with a MSRP of $299 and it's by far the most affordable of all the Nvidia GeForce 600 series. The best part is that it doesn't give up much in terms of performance compared to its peers like the 670 and 680. Here's a comparison:
Here's another comparison of performance across the line for all of Nvidia's cards. You can see the 660 Ti is even a little bit more powerful than the 580.
To make the deal even sweeter, Nvidia has teamed up with Gearbox to offer a free copy of Borderlands 2 for all those who purchase the GTX 660 Ti from select retailers. They claim that players will be able to max out all settings in Borderlands 2.
You can snag a GeForce GTX 660 Ti and a free copy of Borderlands 2 from most major online retailers. Newegg, Amazon and TigerDirect are all offering the promotion.
Gearbox has made it clear that Borderlands 2 is going to much better than its predecessor on the PC. They're putting in all the features that hardcore PC gamers crave and a free copy with a video card upgrade makes it even better.
The GTX 660 Ti is available today from all major retailers. They don't seem to be selling out either so it should be good to wait a few weeks on a purchase. I think we're past the days of the 680 being perpetually sold out for months.
