Solved

gtx 650ti boost 2gb not available anywhere. Discontinued? need equivalent in same price range.

I'd prefer a nvidia card if possible. Mostly just a personal preference as I prefer their drivers. Trying to keep it around 150-170 or less and I will be purchasing it in a week or so.

I would hope between now and then TI boosts would be restocked but just in case I need a good comparative card to have ready. Not sure why they're gone everywhere...

Also will a card like this and a i5 4670k run fine on a CORSAIR CX series CX500 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139027

?

Thanks for the assistance.

More about gtx 650ti boost 2gb discontinued equivalent price range
  1. I realize that you want to stay with Nvidia (love Nvidia myself), but I believe the only equivelant GPUs are the 7850, or the r9 270. About the same performance, and in the same price range.
  2. You're gonna either have to bump up a bit or settle a little if you have to stay with NVIDIA. Or find one on eBay maybe.
  3. best choice for just same price would be 7850 for 2GB!
    or R9 270x if you wanna go further.
  4. 760 oc is your best choice here

    This. R9 270 is my vote as well. Overall a better card, and once Mantle comes out it'll just get better (in some games) AMD really only has had driver problems in CrossFireX that I've seen recently.
  6. i would go with 760 because for extra 40 bucks more u get higher overall performance in other way the 760 will last longer than 270 , as for mantle when proves it's effective on games as on theory but for now 760 is Superior

    The 270 is $70 or more cheaper than the 760, to a lot of people $70 is a lot of money. And the 270 when overclocked is just about a 270x, which is just about a 760, for $70 less. Plus, Mantle will only help the 270. And of course the 760 is superior, it is also more expensive.

    He wanted in the SAME price range, not something that costs 50% more than what he was looking to spend.

    i agree with you and i'm just saying if he wants card that last longer than 270 but for most nowday games yes 270 will be better for the price range , anyway it's up to him to compare both and if the extra bucks justify the price or it doesn't , and for mantle let's not rush things up we still didn't see it's effectiveness on real world
  9. Okay I suppose AMD is the way to go for this price range. Would it be worth it to spend a bit more and get this instead? GIGABYTE GV-N660OC-2GD GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125443 I have a bit of extra money from deciding to keep my current case which will suffice. If their is a better alternative for the same price or less I'll settle with that. Looks like 270 is also an option as has been said. Is there that much of a performance difference?

    That card is better than the 650 Ti Boost, but not as good as the 270. Not a bad NVIDIA choice at that price point, but the 270 would still be better performance at that price.

    But like all things computers, it is up to you to decide, just giving you info lol it won't affect me at all if you are set on NVIDIA :)
  11. The 270/x would be the best performance for that price range. But as it has been said, the GTX 760 will obviously be better if you can squeeze out that amount of money; and it would keep you with Nvidia as you initially wanted it to be.
    My friend got a GTX 760 for roughly $200, so you could hold out for sale if you wish.

    And a GTX 660 Ti would be more equal to a 760 (760 would still be better), but as I recall, 660 Tis are either more expensive or around the same price as 760s currently.
  12. Thanks :) I'll check on them in about a week when I have the cash. Probably go with the faster AMD card. Its too bad the boost card is out of stock and Mia everywhere as I was planning on upgrading a bit later in the year now that I've got the other parts out of the way. But I suppose I'll just to spend more money now lol.

    No problem, glad to help! What are you upgrading from by the way?
  14. A q6600 and a 9800gt heh. Will be a night and day difference. 4670k cpu I imagine is going to smoke it.


    Have been mostly console gaming obviously lol.

    Wow, yes, big upgrade lol enjoy it!
  16. FWIW, I just bought a Galaxy 650ti boost 2GB at Best Buy, they have them on clearance for $165. Had a $50 gift card someone gave me so out of pocket it cost me $115, couldn't resist.

    It's for my aging system, which I'm hoping to string out until the end of the year before building a new one. I didn't want a high end card since the system wouldn't really utilize it fully.

    It's a nice little card, plays everything I have smooth and details on high. I was able to overclock it to 1250MHz which gave it a little more bang.
