Hi I have a new Haswell i5 with a 650 GTX in it, I also have a new N470GTX that I have never used sitting around in a box, which according to passmark runs twice as fast as the 650. My question is what is better for gaming & media? an older faster pci-e 2.0 GTX 470 card or a new slower pci-e 3.0 GTX 650 card?

Please help.

The GTX 470 is better for gaming. The main downside is that it draws more power and probably makes more noise.

found out i would need a PSU and Case upgrade to use the 470... so 650 it is then
