Default GTX 650 Ti Boost Roundup Comment Thread

NVIDIA's $170 GTX 650 Ti Boost has quickly become the go-to choice for gamers on a budget and board partners have been quick to jump on board. In this roundup, we take a look at cards from ASUS, EVGA, Gigabyte, Galaxy and MSI, none of which cost more than $10 more than the reference version.

These cards are dam good value. There's absolutely no point in buying a 660 now, since you're hardly getting much performance for that extra ~$50 or so.

The one thing that always bothers me is the large and unnecessary heatsinks on most of the cards. Galaxy nailed it by keeping it simple, while maintaining a smaller profile and low noise.

Don't knock the larger heatsinks until you've tried them. They're VERY quiet.

Just picked up the ASUS. Going to throw it into my HTPC and fold/casually game on it.

How would a 650ti Boost compare to a GTX570?

Perf would probably be about the same or slightly higher.

I rarely if ever dip into the emerg fund, but for my cousin who's got an older system (soo many cousins I help out lol) this was too good a deal for the performance to pass up. He Games 16x10 so this is perfect.
