[eBay.ca] Asus GTX 1660 Super - $299.99

Saw this deal from Neweggcanada on Ebay. Not a huge discount but a 1660 Super for $300 is a very fair price especially as there is free shipping and 1660 non Supers often go for around $300.

from what i heard the new cards fix a lot of what was wrong with rtx frame loss. either way right now is a bad timing for video cards. if you need right now sure it should be easy to flip it in a few months.

New cards have a co-processor just for RTX to significantly reduce the frame loss.

What’s wrong with ASUS? I am actually in the market for a video card.

acer just like dell have many types of computers, they make cheap affordable things and very expensive things, they sell a lot for cheaper so they can reach a younger crowd as well who might be more careless about their things. i wouldnt trust asus as much as acer or dell, you just got to be careful what you buy.

that is quite the question. depends what you want to play, what the price will be , the lenght of the cards, your casing and your budget, if you choose team green or team red. all cards brand carry a warranty. if you buy a pre built it normally only comes with 1 year warranty that you have to ship the whole system but for buying a card it normally comes with 3 years plus warranty and you can sometimes add extra on top of it..

FUD, asus is fine, but each card model is different even within one manufacturer. so what you're really looking for is a review of the card, not of the company. in this case that's a super low end card that review sites wouldn't usually bother with, so I don't even see a review on google. so you'll have to trust user reviews. what sets coolers apart is how much material goes into them. in this case, it has fewer heat pipes and fans. less mass and fans means less effective heatsinking and more noise.

The rumours are that ray-tracing and DLSS will be much improved on the next gen cards, to the point of there possibly be little if any performance loss. If these features are important to you, you may want to hold off on a new card right now. Of course, the lowest priced card with these features is almost certainly going to be more than this card - probably in the $450-$500 range.

The 1660 cards don't have RTX hardware, so that discussion is rather irrelevant. Don't expect to use RTX on this, because the performance is basically unusable. The new cards coming out this year are the high-end ones only. You'd have to wait until next year for mid and low-end cards.

This is a good deal for now, or you can wait for about a year for a new card at this price point.

EVGA is an excellent OEM for Nvidia-based GPUs, good customer service and let you change heatsinks without voiding warranty. They tend to stick to the Nvidia reference designs, some of the other OEMs do better by adding their own enhancements - which can also be a great or a mess. Really depends on model, do your research.
