I haven't actually seen anything on any cards except for the EVGA 650Ti. My friend recently (has about 2 months play time) built a computer with that card. He LOVES it. His computer is great for modern games (Planetside 2 (he plays this a lot on high, no frame drops), Borderlands 2, AC3) and works with games like Metro, etc. He can't play BF3 on ultra in 1080p at 60 frames, but I would say this is the card you should go with.
Just because your friend likes it doesn't mean OP should get it. Sure the 650ti is a decent card, but the 7770 is cheaper by $35 and nips the heels of the 650ti in performance.
