1. MSI GTX 1660 Ti Gaming X


MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Gaming X is my first choice. It is one of the top-end models and also it has great features and aesthetic look. The card looks great because of RGB lighting and MSI logo.

It has 8-pin power connector on the top and RGB lighting on the top and bottom of the card. You can control RGB lighting and change the effect using MSI mystic light sync software.

This graphics card operates as 130 watts and comes with 3 heat pipes as a cooling solution. Moreover, it can withstand a temperature of up to 65 degrees. MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Gaming X offers ample of headroom to rule out the chances of overclocking.

Conclusion:

As I said MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Gaming X has an excellent aesthetic look and great performance. The overall power consumption is also nominal (130 watts). But, the main problem I notice with MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Gaming X is the coil whine and power delivery.

What I like
  • Seamless switching between multiple profiles
  • Efficiently cooling system
  • Alluring aesthetic design
What I don't like
  • Power delivery is not great
  • Price is a little bit high

2. Asus Rog Strix GTX 1660 Ti OC


ASUS Phoenix GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is a super compact option if you are looking for a high performing card. The memory speed is 1500 MHz and the length of the card is 6.85 inches only. Moreover, the maximum power consumption of ASUS Phoenix GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is 120 watts only. It also comes with an overclocked limit of 60 MHz offset.

Conclusion:

ASUS Phoenix GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is a nice and compact solution but the single fan cooling solution is not much appealing. Moreover, the lack of heat pipes makes it the last choice if you are looking for a sturdy card.

What I like
  • Nominal power consumption
  • Inbuilt factory overclocked
What I don't like
  • The input and output options are not good
  • The overall look is average

3. EVGA GTX 1660 Ti XC Ultra


If you are compact and looking for a pocket-friendly choice, EVGA is a reliable choice. The look is similar to the previous version with minor detailing and highlights.  The outer look is sturdy and comes with single fan.

Conclusion:

The overall design is compact and performance is reliable. The card is placed in a small case and is cooled by just 1 fan hence it creates noise. The efficiency is also low.

What I like
  • Efficient cooling and compact design
  • Available for a pocket-friendly price
What I don't like
  • The fan is loud

4. Gigabyte GTX 1660 Ti OC


This is old edition but the design has changed a lot and GigaByte  GeForce GTX 1660 Ti OC  comes with smart 1536 GPU cores and 6 GB memory. The 2 smart fans are unique and ensure excellent airflow.

Gigabyte  GeForce GTX 1660 Ti OC  can withstand a high temperature of up to 67 degrees. This smart graphics card offers 4+2 VRM which supports high core clocks up to 2025 MHz.

Conclusion:

The memory speed can go up to 1500 MHz and bandwidth is 288.0 GB per second.  In general the GigaByte  GeForce GTX 1660 Ti OC  consists of all the necessary feature but the cooling solution is not up to the mark. The lack of RGB lighting is also a biggest demerit.

What I like
  • Simple design with some great features
  • Affordable price and super easy customization
  • 2 fan which ensures complete cooling
What I don't like
  • The fan is too loud.
  • The front plastic gives a cheap look.
  • No RGB lighting.

5. Gigabyte Aorus GeForce GTX 1660 Ti


Next, I have Gigabyte Aorus GTX 1660 Ti for you. If you are looking for a card having three fans and maximum warranty then this card is for you. You will get 4 years warranty if you register the card online.

Conclusion:

So, if you are looking for the higher boost clock speed card with great cooling system and three fans then this card is for you.

What I like
  • WINDFORCE 3X Cooling System
  • RGB Illumination Metal back plate
  • 4 Years Warranty
What I don't like
  • Higher Price

6. Zotac Gaming GTX 1660 Ti

Last but not least, Zotac Gaming GTX 1660 Ti is another smart choice if you are looking for a compact design card. It comes with dual fans.

This card is capable to handle from 1080 pixel to 1440 pixel games. This card boost clock speed is up to 1770 MHz. To be honest, in my test, I got the boost clock speed 1745 MHz.

Zotac gaming 1660 Ti has two variants. One is Zotac Gaming GTX 1660 Ti and another one is Zotac Gaming GTX 1660 Ti AMP edition. Spend $10 more and get the AMP edition.

AMP edition has higher boost clock 1860 MHz, backplate and power consumption is 130W instead of 120W, IceStorm 2.0 and the AMP edition cards is a little bit bigger than non-AMP edition.

Conclusion:

Overall, Zotac Gaming GeForce GTX 1660 Ti has the good performance and great look. Though fans are a little bit noisy. As I said Zotac has two 1660 Ti variants.

If you want higher boost clcok and backplate then pick then AMP edition. Otherwise you can pick non-AMP edition if you want to save few bucks.

What I like
  • Quality performance and compact design
  • Affordable price
What I don't like
  • Fans are very noisy

Final Words

These are the best GTX 1660 ti card which you can buy right now. In my opinion if you are not in tight budget then you should go for MSI or if you want cheapest rtx 1660 ti card then pick the Gigabyte GTX 1660 Ti OC or Zotac Gaming GTX 1660 Ti.

There is not much difference you can see. All cards are good and also you will get almost same person. So, pick the card from the brand you like and based on the look.
