    If you can find this card for the $165 or less where you live it would be a definite upgrade to what you currently have.

    Yup. Assuming it fits in that tiny tower
  3. When looking at the upgrade options it shows full sized video cards. (GTX 760 and HD 270X)

    Spending money to go from a 645 to a 650 seems a waste.
  7. 650Ti.
  8. Best answer
    Save the $165 for another few months and pick something in the 7xx Nvidia or R9 series for a decent price. $165 isn't enough for a reasonable upgrade, and the 650 ti will still be the bottleneck in your system.
