Another thing that confuses me is that not only there are countless models
to choose from, but actually different manufacturers for the same model too
- the GTX 660 Ti model for example is available from EVGA, ASUS, MSI and
Gigabyte, with prices ranging from $239 to $312. I've been reading the
reviews comparing them, but most seem to be directed to the gaming
community, who may have different needs when compared to us (it seems most
of the difference is about "overclocking", which may be a good thing for a
gamer but perhaps not for someone who actually needs consistency through
much longer running processes). I know this is going off-topic, but I'd be
thankful for more advice about it.

Best regards,
