    This has been up before check the history button. While the price/rebate could be better lwer at this point at least Egg is adding 3D Mark & NZXUIZ Free. Decent Eggviews with some seeing good OC's, the "Direct Touch" H-P cooler is fairly good on temps.

    This GTX 650Ti round up from end of Nov 2012 is interesting... even if on Catalyst 12.8 beta, consider 12.11 beta provided another 5% to a 7770.

    I like the thermal Img of page 5, while page 19 Re-Cap; " Compared to the Radeon HD 7770, the GeForce GTX 650 Ti has an average lead of 8%".

    This is actually a decent deal, should be around $75-$80 IMO but like Casecutter says, they add 3D Mark and NZXUIZ for free. I have this card myself and its a very good low budget gaming card. I've got a YouTube Channel and have lots of games benchmarked and put in a specific playlist for people to see gameplay on this particular card as well. Just search my username on YouTube!
    By the way, the new 13.2 beta is actually available for this card, which boosts a little more performance compared to the 12.11 beta.
    The 650ti is a no go in my opinion, as it cannot SLI or use dual gpu technology, so if in the future you were saving up, you can't really get a second 650ti. BUT, the better card to get instead of the 650ti is the 7850, which is more powerful and is coming to a price of around the same as a 650ti and it can crossfire (use dual gpu) as well.

    For perspective, I bought my Gigabyte OC 7770 for $120 TWELVE MONTHS AGO, so this doesn't appear to be a terribly amazing deal.

    How did you get it for $120 a year ago, the 7770 was just released a year ago for $200 at that time. I would like to know!

    #2 - All good info and while not a great gamer at 1920x; it's more than acceptable for lower resolutions, but that's the problem 1920x has quickly become the norm. I seem to forget the GTX650Ti not permitting SLI and probably the one down side for it; and my biggest complaint when having to drop more than $140 for anyone’s Über renditions. As you say the 7850 1Gb is always a much better buy, but get them while they’re still around! With "Bonaire" 7790 showing AMD and partners will curtail the 7850 1Gb pressure on the $150 point of entry.

    As to #3 and his 7770 being $120 about this time a year ago... apsolutly! Well in May it hit $120, but as early as April 5 it went for $124 with a copy of DIRT3. That Gigabyte OC version was being moved aggressively, but it wasn't always a Slam-Dunk deal. Many reported problems, there was a BIOS fix for the Shader callout being low, and many had issues with it, today those are on a F5 BIOS. Such gloomyness clouded the Rev. 1 running 1100Mhz with memory 1250Mhz (5000Hz effective/ 80GB/s bandwidth) that Gigabyte dropped and went to the Rev.2; that clocked at 1050Mhz and memory at stock (4500Hz effective). Honestly, if you got a good Rev.1 card (and many did) it today has no problems hold its own with a GTX650Ti except those Ãœbers' that really get the memory clock/bandwidth more 1550Mhz/99.2Gb/s.

    It's been the memory/bandwidth that holds back either card. Even today Nvidia announcing they’re looking to release GTX650Ti with a new memory clocks basically opening up to what Über versions like the Zotac AMP could provide.

    Well I thought I'd post this Italian review on the MSI Cyclone II Power Edition N650Ti PE 1GD5/OC, it published yesterday and nobody cared, due the announcement of the new Pope. A great value card if you get it for $120... which today is what Egg has it for $120 –AR$20 w/FS. What! not the $30 rebate like their 7770!
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127704

    I thought this review gave a good mix of titles and a fair portrayal of performance. Although be aware that both the GTX650Ti used are better than reference. They expressing the other as an Nvidia GTX650Ti 2Gb. I didn't find a card like that in their list of previously tested?; almost every 2Gb card I know of comes with above reference clocks, but maintain memory at the 5400Mhz effective of reference... it's suspect.

    What you find is that even though Nvidia asserted there was a clear "advantage" upon release (at least in price), the difference in playable setting between this Cyclone and a reference 7770 isn't always evident. As like with Batman, it's not really jumping ahead with playable margins at their settings. Although, I wish reviews dialed back on settings and eye-candy, focusing on showing playable setting on smaller lists of cards. They set such tests like they did with the "Enthusiast" cards so they can keep the previous test/graphs and it's not helpful; like BF3 – Ultra, MSA4X, AF16X to have it chugging along at 29-34 Fps. Whoopee!
