GeForce GTX 650 1GB Review
GeForce GTX 650 1GB is a fast-middle-class GFX based on the 28nm Kepler architecture.
It's based on the Kepler GK107 Core (same used on GT 640) with a count of 384 CUDA Cores (just like GT 640) but paired with fast GDDR5.
Therefore, GeForce GTX 650 1GB can be addressed as a fast GeForce GT 640 paired with fast GDDR5.
Gaming benchmarks indicate its performance is about 1% better than previous generation - GeForce GTX 550 Ti which might not make it a worthy replacement due to its extra cost and that the most demanding games (Metro 2033, The Witcher II, etc) still require reduced settings while modern demanding games (Battlefield 3, Max Payne 3) are playable at high settings but not paired with extreme resolutions.

I've had this card for about a year now with no problems, still runs like new. I have heard of people having issues with it after about 3 years though.It is a great card for the price.
AC:black flag runs at max settings 1920x1080.

Depends on what you want to spend, but I would get the 750ti because it's a bit better than the 650.

Thanks I know that. My OC card is 4% better but some say that this card cannot get as good as the GTX 650 due to it being a non GTX card.
Its just that I would want to know some real performance comparison and not a technical one. :D

GTX is just a prefix,it doesn't really mean anything,and your overclocked card should act about the same as GTX 650 in games :)

But wait the GTX 650 has a 128 bit bus and mine only has a 64 bit bus. Is this a big difference? :D

One of my friends may be getting a PC with this GPU in it. It will have a FX-8320 and 8 GB of RAM. How well will it handle things such as Far Cry 3, Skyrim, etc.?
