Hi everyone I am new to the forum so please bear with me.

EDIT: I am thinking of buying ASUS GTX 650 Ti Boost 2GB http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-GDDR5-Memory-Graphics-GTX650..., here are my current PC specs:

Motherboard: ASUS P8H61-M LX R2.0 http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P8H61M_LX_R20/

CPU: Intel Pentium G2120 @ 3.10GHz http://ark.intel.com/products/65527/

OS: Windows 8 64 - BIT

GPU: Nvidia GeForce GT 610 http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gt...

MEMORY: 2 X 2GB 1333MHz DDR3 Non-ECC CL9 DIMM Single Rank http://www.ec.kingston.com/ecom/configurator_new/partsi...

PSU: GIGABYTE SUPERB 550/550P GE-P450P-C2 http://uk.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=2...

As you can probably tell, my current GPU NVidia GT 610 is very low-end and I would like to play GTA V smoothly when GTA V's PC version is out.

Would GTX 650 Ti Boost actually be strong enough to run modern games like the upcoming GTA V?

Thanks a ton!

The GTX 560ti can do the job up to 1920x1080 resolution. But I don't know how long that PSU will last with its 2 small 18A (+12V) rails. If you start getting shutdowns or reboots, it will be a sign that the PSU can't keep up.
The HD 7850 or GTX 650ti would be a small step up from the GTX 560ti and in that price range.

Thank you for the fast responses.

After reading through both your comments, I decided to raise my budget to buying Asus GTX650 TI DCII BOOST OC/2G priced at $205.98 (SGD converted to USD).

Now, If I were to buy this card would it be compatible with the above PC specs. I wouldn't mind changing to a better PSU because its cheap, and if I have to which should I consider.

Thanks!

Oh hey !!!

A fellow Singaporean ( ah beng or ah lian ? ) ^-^

I highly recommend you to buy you to buy your GPUs from Amazon. They ship to Singapore to but your purchases have to be at least $130 ( yes , SGD )

The only Things you should buy from Sim-Lim Square is the Motherboard and CPU bundles. Maybe speakers and keyboard too.

For $137 , you can get a HD 7770 from Amazon , and get 1 free game. The HD 7770 is better than the GTX 560 ti .

But one thing bad about ordering from Amazon is that if your purchase is broken , you don't get immediate refund. Yes , they do have their policies and warranties , but it won't be so immediate.

Still , I personally prefer to buy GPUs from Amazon

are you nuts man?? you are leading OP to the wrong alley...560ti is 50% faster than 7770...
560ti is 10% slower than 7850...i suggest you buy 7850 because your psu has only 18A...560ti is power hungry

The GTX 650 Ti BOOST 2 GB is a very good card if you game below or at 1080p.

Don't buy a PSU by price alone. Cheap PSUs are never up to their ratings and never last. And when they do go, they have the bad habit of taking something else out with them. If prices aren't too high where you live, look into a Corsair, XFX, Antec, Seasonic just to name a few.

I wouldn't trust the PSU you have now with the GTX 650ti Boost.

Thanks for your information! Yeah I don't think I will game above 1080p any sooner. So I'm sticking with this card.

Your specs will be good with a 500W+ as long as it is of high quality like the ones in the first 3 tiers of the list I sent. You could even get by with less, but I wouldn't recommend it.

Go with a 660, or 660ti. It'll do better for you. If you can order it from BestBuy (I think they have a sale right now).

And if you buy a GTX 660 , you would get Batman Arkham Origins for free. You cam get one for $237 SGD at amazon.
