Hello, I am planning on getting a new graphics card. Migrating from an integrated HD 4200, pretty much anything I buy would be better than what I currently have. I have meticulously searched for a graphics card for under $100, and lo and behold, a GTX 650 for $89.99 after rebate, and it's factory overclocked! I know it's not the greatest at gaming, but hey, remember what I'm coming from, and the only games I play are RTS, Racing, and Minetest (its like Minecraft). I heard that at the stock price of $110 it was overpriced, but for an overclocked version for less than $100....... What do ya'll think? Any other reccomendation for under $100? Or is this the best deal available? Thanks. :)

Get hd 7750 instead of gtx 650.hd 7750 doesnot need 6pin connector and very low power consumption.

Ehh, thanks, but this model outperforms the 7750, and I dont mind a little bit of extra power consumption, and @antonice22, thanks, but no thanks. Appreciate it anyways, but I think I will stick with what I was going to get, for now. Still open for other options. But thanks for the replies! :D

And, I like having the 6-pin power connector, as it translates to better overclocking capabilities ;)

:)  okay. Thanks! Still open for more options. Appreciate the discussion so far. And yes, the 7750 is a good budget card, I am lucky to have found an overclocked version of a 650 for less than $100.

Yeah, I think I will be happy with my purchase. Especially since RTS games aren't really graphically demanding like FPS, so I should be able to play at really high settings with good framerates. :)

there's also a 900mhz variant of 7750 which requires a pcie connectopr and is faster than an overclocked 650 and can be overclocked further to 1ghz
