I already own them both The 275 will be faster by a decent margin. You could run the 650 as a PhysX card, but unless a game you play is has lots of PhysX effects (and even then), the extra power draw isn't really worth it. m 0 l Cons29 a b Î Nvidia a b 4 Gaming February 27, 2013 11:19:45 PM the best way is to test both (since you have them already). play the games you play, install afterburner to see fps (or fraps). m 0 l Related resources Upgrading from GTX 275 to GTX 650 Ti Boost 2GB or GTX 760 - Forum Gigabyte GeForce GTX 275 vs Gainward GeForce GTX 650Ti - Forum GTX275 SLI on a Corsair TX650 v2? - Forum 275GTX and Samsung LN46C650 Mouse Lag!!!

Get the answer amirp February 27, 2013 11:25:28 PM Here is a comparison of the 650 and the gtx 285 http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/681?vs=520 judging by that the 650 and 275 should be approximately similar in performance. So I would use the gtx 650 as it is newer, has MUCH lower power consumption and will be cooler and quieter. Also the 275 will not be able to use direct x11. Edit... I also agree with Cons29... you have them both, try them out and see which is best m 0 l lethalish February 28, 2013 12:47:41 AM Alright, I'll test out GPU with the same CPU tonight. Probably run 3dmark, a couple games (SWTOR, DMC, Planetside 2 ect..) and post the results. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
