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.

I thought that extra gig would make it atleast a bit more superior to the 7770. sooyong94 November 2, 2012 11:08:51 AM nevillethedevil said:Really?

The GPU is not good enough to utilize all those VRAMs. nevillethedevil November 2, 2012 11:14:41 AM sooyong94 said:Err... nope...

Can anyone vouch for this card or should i go for something in the 6XX series from nVidia? Deemo13 a c 191 U Graphics card November 2, 2012 4:19:35 PM 7850's a darn good card. 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? Deemo13 a c 191 U Graphics card 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.
