It's funny, eh? Nvidia was lauded for providing terrific performance for the dollar with the 680/670/660Ti, especially when compared to the current crop of AMD cards (before and even after price cuts).

But man, on the low end, are they ever pricing themselves out of the market somewhat. I don't get it!

I think It's a good one if you are limited on money or make a small gaming PC,but there is nothing extreme and it's bottlenecked

I was hoping the price of this card would be down in the 7770 range. Then we'd have a real winner.
I hadn't looked at actual prices. Lets hope they fall in the coming weeks (likely they will). The current online prices makes them a bad value IMO (mostly $160-170)

What I find interesting is that ASUS 650Ti is listed at 154.99 CAD on Newegg.ca (Newegg.ca - ASUS GTX650TI-1GD5 GeForce GTX 650 Ti 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card) - a fully custom GTX 650Ti and yet cheaper then others with a reference design.
EDIT: Nevermind, just noticed that it's a 1GB card; than again it's a 650, what does one need a 2GB for?

If it has SLI connecters it would have sold better.

Yo, newegg has the XFX 7850 for $160 after $20 MIR. So $180 up front.
Newegg.ca - XFX Core Edition FX-785A-ZNFC Radeon HD 7850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

After MIR, the card is cheaper than some of the 650TIs and performs way better.

The HD-7850 is quite a bit faster then a GTX-650Ti .The have some HD-7850 as low as $164 with no rebate plus you can crossfire two 7850's and you can'nt SLI the GTX-650 TI.
