In the past, and even till now, Ive never had a powerful computer. I never had a fantastic video card or even CPU. Although I would like to say I really am a true gamer, Ive always has to coast around with what has been affordable hardware. Playing games like Warcraft 3 and Starcraft 2 at lowest settings were saddening due to my limited performance computer (integrated video chipsets, aka Intel HD most recently for me ). In the past, I also tried playing games like Call of Duty and Dead Space at their bare minimums which ended up with poor quality gaming and hardly playable. Despite my budget, Ive always been a computer enthusiast since I was a kid and it was always painful to keep up with the newest hardware out there knowing that what I have is absolute rubbish in comparison.
With the new, exultant GeForce GTX 660 Ti that Nvdia and ASUS produced, my gaming involvement and overall satisfaction with the performance output my desktop would be producing; it would be a real milestone. With the Maximus V Formula motherboard allowing full performance, the GTX 660 Ti will perform 1,344 CUDA cores and a stock core speed of 915MHz, boosting to a maximum of 980MHz when the thermal envelope allows. This would produce flawless frame rates of any game out there possible right now at maximum settings. What really impresses me about this card though is that this version of the GTX 660 has an exclusive big twin-fan heat sink, known as the DirectCu II thermal solution, which grants its graphics core to run at a whopping 1,059GHz. I have also heard that this card is very silent, which definitely another huge plus, considering the power of this card. This card surely exceeds my expectations, and would indisputably be fully utilized by me in the future.
Also in the mix, I would be sure of course to purchase the fusion thermo liquid cooling system specially designed for the Maximus V Formula and high performance video cards such as the ASUS GeForce GTX 660 T to ensure optimal performance of all hardware. Ive always wanted to build a computer with parts such as these, and to be able to complete such a rig with a fantastic liquid cooling system would be ultimate satisfaction towards my eager knowledge of high end computers today. There is not much more that any true hardware enthusiast could ever desire.
