Hi guys,

I'm looking to upgrade my Nvidia GeForce GT520 1GB and I had my eye on a PNY GeForce GTX650 Ti - 1GB - PCI-E.
My question is if this card has better performance and is it worth buying? If no then have you guys got any
suggestions? My budget is €200 and it will be used for gaming (BF3, Crysis, Dragon Age etc.). My GT520 has
been fine for my gaming since I got it but I'd like to be able to move out of the lower end of the graphics settings.

Cheers,
Dan.

The GeForce GTX 650 Ti indeed has much better performance however we need the rest of your system specifications to determine if it's the optimum choice for you.

Processor - Phenom II 840 3.2GHz quad core 
RAM - 4GB DDR3 
Motherboard - Asus M4A88T-V Evo 
Power - 400 watt

If there's anything I've left out I can try find out

What brand is your power supply and how many amps does it have on the 12v rail?

The 650 Ti should be fine then.
