Have you got this one http://www.dabs.com/products/msi-ge...mi-power-edition-87Q0.html?q=msi 660ti&src=16 ?

I wanted a 650gtx ti to save some money but seems 660ti is a better card and more compatible Are there any recommendations for which 660ti to get? Just want something quiet and handle premiere pro well.

Yes that's the one. 660ti is definitely ahead of the 650, very close to the 670 actually. Don't think you'll notice the difference with premiere though. It's in 3d gaming etc that these card get really loaded. If premiere is your main interest you should look for info on the optimal CUDA core count and memory size for it and pick your card accordingly. With a 660ti you might be paying more for 3d capabilities you're not going to use.

As for OSX support, mine is great, no complaints. My experiences are logged earlier in this thread.

I have the 670 GTX and can confirm that console is reporting OPEN GL crash in FCP X, with the newest Nvidia (304.xxx.xxx) driver and CUDA installed (which has nothing to do with Apple).

Would really really like a solution to this crash problem, since the background render is the app-killer.

For those that have working 6xx Nvidia cards, what did you do to make it work ?

There's loads of tests all over the web on that subject. Some non-references provide quite a cooling improvement, others less. The reference one does have the benefit that it blows the hot air right out of your computer case.

I second this. Is FCPx working with GT660 ti?

Seemed to be reading a lot of mixed reports of luck with this card. Planning to go NVIDIA because of the customac guide listing, OOB support and because I believe CUDA cores can be better utilised than ATI cards by Photoshop and CS5-6.

Is this a fair assumption or would an ATI card like the 6870 be a better bet for Photo retouching, design and 3D work?

As always I am a little late to the dance but, I wanted to report that FCPX works great with this card.
I can't get 3 monitors though. Which is important if I decide to keep this card. Any help is appreciated.
BTW, I am using the Gigabyte 660ti.
