Is there anything I need to know about the gtx 1660ti?

First of all, me as a novice builder naturally wanted something that is:

  1. Cheap
  2. Fast

Which make the 1660ti or 1660 a reasonable and logical choice. Now The card has came out for more than a month, which should be the time when issues regarding the card start to pop up, is there anything worth noting before buying it? And also what is the difference between the "ti" and "non-ti" version?

ti means its a little bit better than the non ti version

 

it depends on what games you're playing, the settings you're playing, and the resolution you're playing at.

 

the 1660 performs right around the 1060 6gb/rx 580 8gb.

You can overclock the 1660 vram and have it perform almost on pair with the 1660 Ti

OK stupid question warning. 

Wouldn't you be able to overclock the Ti to put it that much ahead of an OC'd 1660?

yes and also the 1660ti has more cuda cores active making it noticeably faster...

 

1660ti GPU specs:

  • Shading Units: 1536
  • TMUs: 96
  • ROPs:48
  • SM Count:24

1660 GPU specs:

  • Shading Units: 1408
  • TMUs:88
  • ROPs:48
          SM Count: 22
 
I guess what she ''saw'' was the 1660ti use faster GDDR6 memory...which is true as well...and if you overclock the memory of the 1660 you will somewhat bridge that gap there but you also need a hefty overclock on the GPU processor in order to match a stock 1660ti...and then if you overclock the 1660ti...you know, your point is absolutely valid.
 
The 1660ti is no doubt a faster and more powerful card...by about 15% overall...so it depends on price and what performance you want to which one is best choice for you.
