Video Cards / GeForce 1660 ti question.
« on: March 07, 2019, 09:19:11 AM »

With the new lower priced GeForce 1660 ti's I've decided maybe the best idea for me right now is to pick one up and then do a build from the ground up in a year or two.

I've seen that the GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1660 Ti WINDFORCE OC 6G Graphics Card, 2 x WINDFORCE Fans, 6GB 192-Bit GDDR6, GV-N166TWF2OC-6GD Video Card is recommended in the $1000 pc build, so of all the variants, I'd assume this is TBG's pick?

The only problem is my monitor doesn't have HDMI or Displayport 1.4.  I just have DVI, which it doesn't look like this card has.  I'd like to keep my monitor as my goal was to do one last minor upgrade to my existing rig to get me 1-2 more years before I do a full system build and buy a new monitor as well.

So my question is should I purchase an alternative?  Such as EVGA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti XC GAMING, 06G-P4-1263-KR, 6GB GDDR6, HDB Fan which looks to be boosted to the same clock speed and does have a DVI port


Buy the Gigabyte Card and a DVI to HDMI cable?  Does that work, or do you get weird artifact lag or something like that?  Is performance lost in the translation process?

Thank you.  If a TBG mod sees this and provides links I can buy through places where you get credit.
