Anything better than Gtx 650 Ti for the price?

I am fairly inexperienced with video cards so I was wondering if there was any video card on the market that beats the Gtx 650 Ti for it's price.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5247879&sku=E145-0658

It is 139.99 after rebate and 150 is the absolute most money I have to spend on a card. So is there anything better for less than 150?

    be nice to know more about your hardware and monitor/resolution and whether or not you can save a little more money. you're on the edge of being able to get a much better card.
  2. this card is only 10 dollars more after rebate ) and has a good lead on the 650ti http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150642&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=

  3. forget the card I listed above. misread. give other info though.
  4. Simply put, no there is not any better card than a GTX 650 Ti under $150. Here is another GTX 650 Ti for cheaper than the one you listed.

    Nice find, however I think the extra money in my response suggestion is worth it.. significantly faster for only $10-$15 more

    That is $55 more than the one I have linked and the OP has stated $150 is his absolute max. So the card you have listed would be about a 10-20% increase in performance for 50% more money - He is on a tight budget the card I listed is much better for price/performance.





  7. I have to second that the 7850 is totally worth it.
  8. Not to mention all 78xx series cards come with free Bioshock inf and Tomb Raider for the time being.
  9. I really don't see the point in even suggesting it when he said his ABSOLUTE max budget was $150. I do agree it is a good deal better... But its a $55 difference from the 650 Ti... AND ~$20 over budget.

    I understand your logic, however I was basing my assumptions on his post not yours ( i should have been more clear ) based on your find, yes it is a good deal and significantly more money.. however based on his, it is definitely worth it. ( sometimes ppl say ( example ) 150 is my max and then when they see something a good deal faster for a small amount more, then bend a little ) I see that all the time in this field which is why i suggested what I did. if it was 25 more I would not have bothered. hopefully you can now see my logic in making the recommendations I did. your deal is a good deal I dont' deny that at all. :D
  11. Honestly man, I would DEFINATELY save up a little more and get at LEAST the GTX 660 as it performs a whole lot better and for only 50 dollars more. You can get GTX 660's for 200$. You DO NOT want to skimp on the graphics part of your system. A year from now you'll be wondering why you didn't just spend an extra 50 bucks. Trust me on this on as I have 2 660 Ti's in SLI, you'll always want more FPS and higher quality settings. Even if you have to wait a little bit just save 50 more bucks.

    $200-$110 = $90 difference. I just got that card actually. I'm waiting for the rest of my system build to come in but at that price for a low-end build to play around with until you have the cash to upgrade to something way better I'd stick with this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127710 . Plus we don't know how long it'll take him to save the money. New GPUs might be out by then if he doesn't make a lot of cash.
