I have that card and I'm just upgrading it to 970 later this week/early next week. I have found the GTX 660 to be ineffective in many of the newer games. With 660 you can't have all max graphics if you want to keep FPS around 60 or above. Also the energy consumption is almost the same so you would just get lots of more performance with the 970.

 

970 is "miles" ahead of the 660. http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/high_end_gpus.html

In WoT? I have everything on max except "extra effects in Sniper mode completely off", flora density on medium", "post processing completely off" and "motion blur completely off". FPS is mostly 50~60, then sometimes goes lower.

 

Also WoT doesn't need that high end GPU. It's more dependent on CPU.

You could get a nVidia GTX 750 Ti, its not that expensive but it should run most games on decent graphics

GTX 660 will surely be a massive improvement for your system. You can't expect to be able to play all games with full details in full-HD resolution with a 2-year-old GPU that wasn't even top-of-the-line when it came out, but you'll definitely get better graphics than you currently get.

I bought the 760... it's comeing in a week. And I'm just asking for WOT. Can I play @ max details with this one?
