    What is the best nvidia gpu for gaming?

    Hi guys, what is the best gpu for gaming at this moment in Linux? I was thinking to buy a GTX 660, but is it overkill at this point? Right know i have a couple of HD6670 in crossfire and they get the job done easily...but i'm fed up with AMD drivers!
    I play @1080P, mostly SS3, TF2 still waiting for some decent FPS.

    So I've completed some more benchmarks, here is the link if someone is interested in seeing.

    The best video cards in price/perf ratio are GTS450, GTX550-560, GTX650-660. If you have a game that doesn't give you decent FPS with these cards in native resolution then disable the FSAA, lower anisotrophic filtering, lower your resolution a bit and try again. Slightly lower resolution will give you a nice anti-aliasing - anisotrophic like effect and your GPU won't have to compute the overwhelming filtering bits. Happy gaming

    And don't ever consider an AMD gpu if you don't intend to take on "an opensource driver zealot's pilgrimage to feature-performance wonderland"™.

    hI guys, I have benchmarked my gpu with unigine valley, and it seems to do slightly better than the HD7950 just to show how much better are the nvidia drivers!

    And no, I am not AMD "worker", owning two AMD cards does not qualify one to become "worker".
    I am perfectly fine with OP purchase 660 card, in fact I recommended him nvidia for certain cases in my first post.
    I study history in college, but clearly you can not understand what an irony.

    A decent price/performance ratio can be had from the 650 Ti Boost right now, which can play modern games at medium to high settings up to 1080p.

    OK, so i I've benchmarked the gpu with nvidia 310.14 drivers and i think it did fairly well comparing with AMD cards
