Should I get ASUS 650Ti? Photo editing, Games

Any opinions? I am thinking of getting a NVIDIA 650Ti GPU (since ASUS seems to be in general good, I am looking at ASUS 650Ti 1GB). Boost seems abit overkill? Also it seems like to be as simply an overclocked version thats likely going to use more power and give more heat (of course more performance too, but I am thinking it might not be really required in this case). On the other hand Ti seems like a good idea over non-Ti?

I guess the usage with respect with the GPU is mainly Photo editing and Gaming.

- Lightroom/Darktable/Photoshop
- TF2, Bioshock Infinite ...

UPDATE

I cant remember exactly the specs of the existing system (in sch now so dont have access to the PC), but I think its something like

AMD Athalon 2 250? Not too sure abt chipset
8 GB DDR(not sure 2 or 3 actually)
ATI 57xx series
PSU is likely a Cooler Master 460W or something along those lines

x4 640 is not bad, ati 57xx covers a big spread, 5750,5770,5790. A 650 ti non boost will be faster than the 57 series cards and use less power.

I have the msi 650 running with my 955 amd it seems to be a good match The 650 ti boost is not just a overclocked 650 ti it is running a 192 bit bus just like the gtx 660. Standard gtx650/650ti run on a 128 but bus. With your cpu just pick a good card that fits your budget
a 650 ti or hd 7790 will be fine.

Don't be quick to jump over to intel, the landscape is changing, games and programs are being written to take advantage of multiple cores bringing new life to the older amd 4 cores.

Yup. You need to look for a new cpu. If you post your motherboard model the community can offer suggestions.
