Default What matters most in a GPU?

Hi guys, so I'm looking at the Palit GTX 660Ti which costs 215 And the MSI GeForce GTX 660 which is 180, There's a significant difference between the Clock cores and stuff, The MSI GTX 660 Having at least 200 more MHz base/boost clocks, but like 300 less Cuda Cores, what matters most?

It's a combination of both depending on the architecture of the generation of card you are looking at. Stick with the 660ti.

Will do thanks :-) Seeing as the graphics card is overclocked, providing I Find out how to put it on overclocked wouldn't it just make sense to keep it on overclocked 24/7? I'll buy a Few extra 120mm Fans so it remains cool, wouldn't that make sense though?
