Would an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 be a mid-range video card?

I would like to play games like Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Watch Dogs, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, FIFA 14, Saints Row IV, Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Crysis 3 and upcoming games at least at medium resolution and settings.

  1. The GTX 650 (plain 650, not Ti or Boost or anything like that) is a low-mid-end graphics card.

    At 1080p, you will probably have to turn settings to low and turn off AA to achieve a 30 FPS average in games like BF4.

    you are wrong.a gtx 650 will be able to play bf4 at high 1080p at 30+ fps with no problems,its not that but.i had intel hd 4600 and i could play bf4 at low(with the lowest resolution)
  3. Pay a bit more and get the 650ti, it will run those games better. If you have the cash then the best mid range gaming card is the 660ti.
  4. You'd be better off with a 650 Ti or 7770 at the very least, a 650 should handle it at low-medium settings at 1080p

    Ok, what about an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660? Is it a good mid-range video card?

    Yep, it's a good middle end card

    This 7850 is an excellent value

    http://pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-video-card-r7850twinfrozr2gd5oc

    So is this 7870 (the better cooler would make it worthwhile over the reference design)

    http://pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-video-card-r78702gd5toc

    For games like BF4 you'd need a pretty decent CPU especially for the 64 player multiplayer

    EDIT: should have linked a 2GB model but instead linked a 1GB model of the 7850, oops

    i understand you want nvidia..thats fair, but i want you to know any radeon HD 7870 will blow the 660/660ti clear out the water, so high up, that know one will ever see it again and would have no evidence of its existence thereafter. lol
  12. I'd glady pay $20 more for an aftermarket cooling design over a reference design

    What's your overall budget?

    I have no budget but maybe someday I could have that computer.

    if you have no budget get a 700 series GTX card?...and i5 and 8GB ram might start to get held back a bit by a mid range card IMO
  15. Really those AMD cards are the best deal right now, but if you want to stick with Nvidia then this should suffice

    Not really a great deal since an AMD combo will save you a fair amount of money

    Feel free to replace the CPU and mobo with a 3570k+z77 board or a 4670k+z87 board, if your budget allows for it, I'd step up to a GTX 760

  16. Ok, thank you everybody!!!
  17. If you can extend your budget this could be worth considering (still stuck with an Nvidia card, not priced very competitively though)

    Just something else to consider

    Ok, thank you.
  19. 2gb 7870ghz edition for $108 after coupon code "NEWEGGBLKFRI5C"
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

    thats the same thing as a 270x and vastly cheaper and competes with the gtx660


    although i did see a powercolor 7870LE(tahiti chip) the other week for $129.... they sold out quick but the 7870le competes with the 660ti. i would consider these lowest kepler/tahiti chips to be solid mid range cards with the full kepler/tahiti chips being mid/high end.... anything below the regular 7870/660 is low/mid range with the 650ti/7790 being the best low end cards.
  20. here are my specs.
    HP DC7800 core 2 duo 3.0 6mb.
    4gb RAM.
    160 gb hd
    which graphics card should i go for..
    nvidia 620 2gb / 630 1gb
    ati 5450 2gb / 5570 2gb / 6670 2gb.
    which one should i go for
