Upgrading my 610, should I get the MSI N650 PE or the MSi N560ti hawk? 650 is faster, but has memory interface at 128 bit, 560 has it at 256-bit, this important?

More about : 650 560ti

The 650 is definitely not faster than the 560ti, there is quite a big difference.

Between those 2 I would go for the 560ti but if you were to expand your options the 660 would be a better choice.

Is memory interface that important? Thinking on waiting anyway

In most cases no...

If you are looking for an Nvidia card I'd be looking at the 660+ for the best value...

What games and resolution?

Planetside and RaiderZ would be fine on a low end GPU like the 650, for Borderlands 2 I would want something a bit better like the 660.... Its a bit more expensive than the cards you mentioned though..

The 650 really isnt worth the money IMO, you have a nice CPU may as well compliment it with a nice GPU

Which power supply are you running?

And I would get the 660 over the 560Ti.

The 650 Ti would work but more so the 660 non ti would be a better choice all the way around in your situation

I'd get the 7850, which beats both.

Its worth knowin....lol.... 7850 is a great card too and it can be found slightly cheaper than the 660.. Just thought id keep the Nvidia theme going as he wants to play Borderlands 2 and the keplers handle PhysX quite nicely.

Sorry. The 660 beats the 7850, but I thought you meant the 650. The 7870 still beats the 660, and can be found for the same price as a 7850 or 660.

Yea in some games... The 7870/660 are fairly even IMO, believe me nothing against AMD cards, I find it difficult to argue for either side, they are all priced accordingly...

It was Borderlands 2 that swung it for me just.... It wins by a decent margin in BF3 according to anandtech too... OP didn't mention it but I know its quite important to some...

But then I suppose there is the argument that the 7850/70 will overclock better, dunno I just like the 660 for the price, but would have the feeling he would be very satisfied with either... Definitely a better choice than the 650...

Yea sounds good, let us know closer to the time as well incase any prices change, doubt it though...

Bitfenix make great cases.. not familiar with that exact model in real life but definitely good quality, lots of features, good cable management... and a nice clean look... looks like a fine choice to me..

Edit: As for silence, get a card with a nice cooler, recommend MSI... and some nice case fans.. liking the corsair range at the moment and you'll be good that case is solid!

Ghost comes with 2 120 spectres, and extras are $10 each. Apparently screws that come with them suck though. Silicone fan mounting screws, thoughts?

Haven't used them before but heard good things... Silicone mounts are always beneficial... you'll get them with most of the high performance fans....

You shouldnt have a problem sticking with them.... and I'd grab some more if you wanna fill this case to keep it all the same, purely for aesthetics.

The way I see it, the more the merrier.... but if noise is an issue just as many as you need.

Id have the front as an intake and any at the top/rear as exhausts...

Ghost is soundproofed, and Spectres are max 20 dBa, sound is not a problem
