    Got a new video card! worth it? or could i of got better for the same price?

    I picked up a Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 superclocked Signature 2 at micro center last night! was $280 but it was on sale for $220 and still had a $20 mail in rebate! i also got free game's for it. but over all, do you think the 660 SC Sig 2 was worth the price? or could i of got better for less or around the same?

    A 660 SC for $200 is a pretty good deal.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    ​$60 is 23% more expensive, and yet only 10% more powerful, so yes, it's still a good deal.
