Just ordered a Nvidia GTX 650

Since it seems the HD 7790 is not working on my systems despite 3 rma replacements and my friends GTS 250 worked fine in my present system to replace my failing HD 6570, have doubts if the 7750 will cause the same "no signal" issue so I decided to order a GTX 650 because I like the size and TDP which I assume translates to low temperatures and wattage. The 650 ti uses more wattage so I stuck with the regular gtx 650. I play games like Hidden Objects and Alice madness returns and perhaps bioshock, Nothing major and I like a video card that is quiet, doesn't use too much wattage an runs cool. PSU is not an issure as I have a 630watt psu

Edits: I spend more time using office 2010 or watching videos either with br rips or Netflix or hulu. also process photos in Photoshop. Question is if this is the best graphics card for me for what I do? i5 200, hp 2311x monitor windows 7 home edition. 8Gb ram. Just don't want a card that is way above my needs but will be thr if I need any extra oomph.

i5 2500 and a Pegratron IPISB Chicago motherboard. HP h81010t. Any thoughts on why the HD 7790 would not give me a video signal to my monitor when I installed it?

should I just keep his GTS 250 which runs hot ore get a GTX 650?

Reopening the thread. Please remember that we don't allow bumps on this forum. You should also give us some time to read the question and think. 4 posts in a 30min span is a bit much where ever you go.

Bios up to date? 6pin PCIe power plug was plugged in tight? Should have happened automatically but did you try disabling the onboard in the bios? You were plugged into the card and not the onboard right? (you'd be surprised how often that happens. Happened to me once even.) Did it work in another computer?

650 should work fine. Nvidia cards tend to be over priced compared to AMD ones but if you want one it shouldn't be bad. You might want to consider the 650TI boost or even the new 760 depending on your budget and possible games.

Updated the bios, plugged the 6 pin power; even tried both power plugs as my psu has 2. On board video was never used. In fact the computer came with those ports blocked off but just to be sure I check the bios and indeed the integrated graphics is disabled.
Didn't have another computer to try it in. However my friends old GTS 250 which requires a separate 6 pin power worked just fine. The only difference I see is that the 250 is DDR3 and 2.0 slot which as far as I can tell should not make a difference.
One thing I did notice is the last time I tried the 7790 I just let the computer run though there was no signal to the monitor. After 20 minutes I shut it off and reinstalled the old GPU. When I turned it on my video setting were all mess up like it was trying to install the AMD drivers but there was no signal to the monitor. Even without the drivers there should be some image on the monitor correct.
Anyway I ordered the GTX 650 since I was debating over getting the 7750 and they were rated the same in performance and the NVidia GTS 250 worked so maybe that was an omen. I really didn't want to risk a fourth failed hd 7790 though I as tempted to try another brand other than XFX.
I ordered my first HD 7790 on June 8 and it is Jul 8 and still no new card. The Nvidia is coming from New Jersey where as the HD 7790 came from Whittier, CA.
Thanks for reopening this thread. Seems I am now just venting but would really like to know if there is ANYONE having or have had this same issue?

I'm sure there are issues, people have issues all over the place. I haven't really heard of this or you've already done the steps I would have to fix it. Not sure what the problem is. In my rigs I've ran Nvidia, S3, and AMD/ATI, never had a problem. Back in the day I even ran an AGP Nvidia card with a PCI ATI. My first dual monitor setup. I'd just wait for the card and see what happens.

Received the new GTX 650 and works just fine; no issues. Maybe the HD 7790 wasn't getting enough power from the motherboard. I have no idea and since I changed to another manufacturer and chip set I will never know if it wasn't 3 bad cards in a row.
