Gigabyte GTX660Ti Windforce Review
Gigabyte have really got a handle on their packaging lately. Whilst their motherboard boxes are in need of a refresh, the GPU ones are classy, clear and really grab your attention. It's wonderful to not be looking at some 80s style fantasy figure.
The Windforce cooler has been on a few cards now and every one that we see it on it just gets worse and worse. We understand that to a certain degree the performance outweighs the aesthetic, but this doesn't remotely fit the PCB and looks more like a Heath Robinson solution than something from one of the major players in the hardware world.
You don't even get a hefty chunk of nickel-plated goodness. We know that a low power card naturally needs less cooling performance, but the Windforce GTX660Ti will never win any beauty contests, custom blue PCB or not.
The business end has the usual selection of outputs, two DVI, an HDMI and a DisplayPort. Power is provided by two 6-pin PCIe connectors which should be more than enough to keep things running smoothly even under heavy loading.
