Default Borderlands 2 free with new Nvidia GTX 660 Ti

The GTX 660 Ti--the latest in Nvidia's Kepler-based GPU range--will be available to purchase on August 16 for 249 in the UK and $299 in the US, the chip maker revealed today. The 660 Ti will be almost identical to the much pricier GTX 670, with 1344 CUDA Cores, a 915Mhz Base Clock, a Boost Clock of 980 Mhz, and a slightly lower TDP of 150 Watts. The key difference lies in its 2GB of memory, which runs on a 192-bit architecture, rather than 256-bit.

Nvidia claims there is just a 15 percent drop in performance when compared to the 670, while also realising gains of up to 80 percent when compared to older cards like the GTX 470 and GTX 260. PC builders who purchase the card will be given a free copy of Borderlands 2 via download, with the promotion running until launch stock of the card is exhausted.

I'm tempted but I'll probably wait for the GTX7** series, my 560 Ti's plenty at the moment.
