I'm really new to this sort of thing and I have seen that the GTX 650ti is not SLI compatable, does this mean there is no official way of running two of these cards on the same system? It's not a major thing but I am interested to know for future reference when upgrading my PC. Thanks

Have you bought the 650ti yet?

In short, its not worth SLI'ing.

You can run two of them just not in SLi.

You can run both, yes. But not SLI. So really you're not gonna get much of a performance boost by having both sitting in your system.. Unless you want to dedicate the second one to PhysX, but that's practically useless.

Actually a gtx 650 ti is a very good card which contains half the resources of gtx 680. Nvidia carefully avoided sli enabled it because by combining both cards (at $300) it can prove a match for gtx 670( sli increases 80-85 % performance compared it to single card). Hence it is not sli enabled. Also nvidia will not provide sli optimised driver for gtx 650 ti unless until done by 3rd party.

It's that fun thing called marketing :)

Just saying I have 1 560 NVidia graphics card and I can run anything on ultra-max no problems it's only like 200 bucks. If I was gonna do it and I hadn't bought the 650 i'd buy 2 of the 560's but I mean 1 is like crazy fast. hope this helps
