Alright. Basically the first number in the GTX series is the card generation. The next two numbers are how high end the card is.

For example, a gtx 650 is the 6th generation, but mid level card. A gtx 590 is the 5th generation, but has a higher end thus better than the 650

A good place to start understanding all the generations of cards that were / are available is:

After that, what your MB and PSU supports, desired screen resolution, and (most importantly) your budget come into play when deciding on a card.
