I won't be staying with AMD.

edit: And the OP is correct with the OCing taking place on the motherboard - that board is crazy easy to OC. Also, isn't this thread supposed to be about games that will push this system? I'm the only one that has listed games...
Because as it stands right now you get more bang for your buck from AMD.

You can get a 7950 for the same price as the 660ti. From the factory those 2 cards are neck and neck... and then you start OCing and the 660ti just can't keep pace.

IMO, the 660ti needs to drop about $20-30.
