Gainward GTX650 2GB Tags: Graphics Cards Gainward Graphics Last response: November 3, 2012 8:06 AM in Graphics & Displays Share nevillethedevil November 2, 2012 7:28:18 AM Hey guys, There is currently a listing for the Gainward GTX 650 2GB card for $135 (Brand new), compared to the Gigabyte ones which run up to 185 to 200 dollars. I'm planning on using this card for light 3DS max work and BF3, i will be running this on a full HD 23' display and am wondering how it will perform with my system: AMD Phenom II X4 B50 3.10ghz 4GB 800MHZ DDR2 x3 WD 500GB Sata II (no raid config) OCZ 650 Watt PSU Any advice is appreciated, Cheers.

There's even some OCing headroom in the 7770. | Report abuse mohit9206 Graphics card Authority November 2, 2012 9:05:14 AM yup for 1080p a 650 will not cut it in BF3 if you want to play on high settings. 7770 is the way to go | Report abuse Related ressources Gainward GTX650 Ti-No monitor signal - Forum Gigabyte GeForce GTX 275 vs Gainward GeForce GTX 650Ti - Forum 650ti vs gtx650 vs 7770 - Forum Nvidia GTX650 Very Low Performance - Forum Nvidia Geforce GTX650 massive stuttering - Forum Ask the community Publish nevillethedevil November 2, 2012 10:55:55 AM Really?

Can anyone vouch for this card or should i go for something in the 6XX series from nVidia? | Report abuse Deemo13 Graphics card Master November 2, 2012 4:19:35 PM 7850's a darn good card. | Report abuse nevillethedevil November 3, 2012 12:45:19 AM Deemo13 said:7850's a darn good card. My mobo is a little old, only has 2 PCI 2.0 slots, not going to run into huge performance issues even know that PCI is backwards compatible? | Report abuse Deemo13 Graphics card Master November 3, 2012 8:06:06 AM Its backwards compatible, and you should run into 0 performance drawbacks with 3.0 vs 2.0 at this level of graphics cards. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays> Gainward GTX650 2GB> Related ressources: ForumGigabyte GTX650 - 2 GB ForumGTX650 TI vs 7770 OC Ed.
