A great blend of performance, quality and value, the MSI GeForce GTX 650 VGA card offers the perfect entry point to DirectX 11 gaming for budget-conscious users. Based on the industry-leading 28nm Kepler architecture, the MSI GeForce GTX 650 card delivers exhilarating graphics power with power SMX shaders and abundant amount of memory. You can feel the performance punch in the latest gaming and demanding application. A host of NVIDIA GTX features such as NVIDIA Adaptive Vertical Sync, NVIDIA Surround, TXAA AntiAliasing, NVIDIA PhysX offers you more than one way to elevate your gaming experience. Besides performance, all solid capacitors and exceptional cooling with Propeller Blade technology guarantee superior reliability and stability for you to game hard in demanding conditions.

  • newegg Superior Cooling Large cooling fan with high quality heatsink delivers efficient and effective heat removal under any load level. Propeller Blade Technology generates 20% more airflow than traditional fan design. The grooved surface on the fan blade further extends the range of air flow for optimized cooling.
  • newegg All Solid Capacitors This card adopts all solid capacitors which feature aluminum core without explosion. The premium solid capacitor enables lower temperature, higher efficiency, and 10 years ultra-long lifetime (under full load), allowing you to game hard with full confidence.
  • newegg NVIDIA Adaptive Vertical Sync Nothing is more distracting than framerate stuttering and screen tearing. The first tends to occur when framerates are low, the second when framerates are high. Adaptive V-Sync is a smarter way to render frames. At high framerates, V-sync is enabled to eliminate tearing, at low frame rates, it's disabled to minimize stuttering. It gets rid of distractions so you can get on with gaming.
  • newegg NVIDIA Surround with Up To Four Monitors Nothing is as breathtaking as playing your favorite games across three monitors. At 5760 x 1080, the expanded field of view fully engages human peripheral vision and provides for the most immersive experience in racing and flight simulators. Add in a fourth display to keep tabs on chat, email or web while you are gaming.
  • newegg TXAA AntiAliasing Antialiasing helps to smooth out jagged lines in games. Existing techniques like MSAA are effective at removing jagged lines in still images but struggle with crawling and shimmering artifacts when the player is in motion. TXAA is a new antialiasing mode that combines MSAA, temporal filtering, and post processing for the highest edge quality and minimal shimmering during gameplay.
  • newegg NVIDIA PhysX Technology Full support for NVIDIA PhysX technology, enabling a totally new class of physical gaming interaction for a more dynamic and realistic experience with GeForce.

4 out of 5 eggsNice entry-level card

Pros: Plays all the modern games(although not at high settings)
Great card for older MMO's like WoW

Cons: You get what you pay for. Don't expect this to play nearly anything at ultra. Cooler is way oversized for this card, and loud at higher fan speeds.

Other Thoughts: This is a really good card for entry level gamers, people who play older games alot(like I do), and the like. Although the MSI brand is a decent brand, I wasn't impressed enough to buy another one. I'll be buying a GTX 970 in the coming weeks, most likely from Gigabyte.

4 out of 5 eggsNo SLI :(

Pros: Quality build/components, has handled everything I have thrown at it

Cons: No SLI Support, which is the only thing keeping me from giving a 5 egg rating

4 out of 5 eggsOh yes

Pros: Cheap while still dolling out beautiful graphics

Cons: HUGE
Did not come with HDMI converter as pictured (it came with a vga/dvi one and in the manual it doesn't say it comes with a converter or in the newegg description so don't expect one at all)

Other Thoughts: This is one behemoth of a graphics card. I bought an HDMI monitor to use with it (and pictured converter) but the converter was not included. I was going to send it back because of this but it wasn't listed anywhere that this was included so I didn't.
Otherwise drivers are easy to install and card works wonderfully.
It auto adjusted skyrim to high settings, but I'm sure it is capable of much more

5 out of 5 eggsGood card

Pros: Better graphics than what i expected to get from a $100 Card. I play MMORPGs, was able to run Rift on ultra and the FFXIV open beta on high. Great upgrade from my GT 430, runs really cool, fit in an HP stock case.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: wish you could SLI this card, but that'd make other upper tier cards pointless i guess.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Video Card

Pros: Improved graphics over an HD6770 video card.

Cons: None that I can see.

Other Thoughts: This card replaces an HD6770 that up until a year ago, would not even considered an NVidia card as I have always used ATI cards for several years but I am glad I did. Great graphics, video has improved and very stable. I would recommend this card to someone who is budget minded but wants a good performing video card.

1 out of 5 eggsDisappointing and Discouraging

Pros: Looks good.

Cons: Not compatible with my new MSI motherboard. Didn't work.

Other Thoughts: After exchanging the first card for another one because it wasn't working in my new system the second one didn't work either. So I started talking to MSI tech support and after several days of going back and forth we concluded that the video card and motherboard were not compatible even though they were both made by MSI.
If you plan on buying an MSI 990FXA-GD80 V2 main board then don't get this graphics card.

After sending the first one back at my expense, taking an $18 hit on the restocking fee and sending the second one back for a refund at my expense I will have paid $40 and many many hours of testing and messing around for a card that doesn't work and I still need to get another card. I will never buy another MSI video card again. This is my second time in 4 years buying one and this one was worse than the first one.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We apologize for the issues that you are having with this product.
This card should work fine with the motherboard that you've mentioned. If you want, we can perform testing using the same configuration, please email us at if you want us to verify this for you

Thank you.

Best Regards,
MSI Review Team |

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Runs every game I play on the highest settings... Aion, SWToR, STO, X3 trilogy, Secret World, and so on... Great for most any game that doesn't run the Crytek engine. For the price, it's awesome for my needs.

Cons: Some distance rendering glitches... Some foliage layers in certain games overlap and show through each other. Will probably have to replace in a year or so as games become more process intense and bog this card down.
