Default updating a 5 year old gaming rig - PART TWO

Major props to PP Mguire for the incredible help on my last thread, and im sure he will end up chiming in on this one too.

So basically the only thing left when i am done with this will be my rosewill 850W psu and my case.

I have ordered (and was supposed to be here today, but should get here tomorrow):
msi z77a-g41 mobo
i5 3570k cpu
and 8gb of g.skill ripjaw ram.

Now i need the part that really matters, the gpu.

I am leaning toward a geforce gtx 660 ti. However i would love some input, and once this is narrowed down a little help picking the exact manufacturer of the card would be helpful.

I was leaning toward this one:
Newegg.com - MSI N660 Ti PE 2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
simply because it comes with a slight factory overclock, and it is made by MSI, which will be the same mfr as my mobo.

I would love any input you guys have.

Just signed up for newegg preferred account. This may be the start of a bad trend for me, haha.
