There's something awfully frustrating about soft launches—when products get announced but don't become available until a few days, weeks, or months later. Luckily, that's not the case with Nvidia's new GeForce GTX 660. We're already seeing a healthy number of cards listed and in stock at Newegg, several of which bear the suggested $229.99 price tag.
Right now, Newegg has the following GeForce GTX 660 cards in stock:
|EVGA SuperClocked 02G-P4-2662-KR||1020||1085||$229.99|
|MSI N660 TF 2GD5/OC||1033||1098||$239.99|
The $229.99 EVGA model with the 1020MHz base clock might offer the most performance for the money right now. However, it seems to come with the standard Nvidia cooler. Folks seeking a quieter, more compact solution should probably consider the stock-clocked Zotac card, which we featured in our review and found to be very competent—and quiet, to boot. It, too, is priced at $229.99.
Too bad our Editor's Choice winner—Asus' 1072MHz GeForce GTX 660 TOP—isn't in stock yet. Considering the number of cards out already, though, I'm sure it'll pop up in Newegg's listings before long.
