The Geforce GTX 650 gives you a GTX gaming experience at a remarkable price. Based on the fast and efficient NVIDIA Kepler architecture, Geforce GTX 650 provides the perfect entry point to DirectX 11 and 1080p HD gaming in your favorite FPS and MMO games.

  • newegg Kepler GPU Architecture NVIDIA's Kepler GPU architecture has been designed from the ground up not just for maximum performance in the latest DirectX 11 games, but optimal performance per watt. The new SMX streaming multiprocessor is twice as efficient as the prior generation and the new geometry engine draws triangles twice as fast. The result is world class performance and the highest image quality in an elegant and power efficient graphics card.
  • newegg NVIDIA GPU Boost Up until now, GPUs have operated at a fixed clock speed when playing 3D games, even if they have the potential to run faster. GPU Boost intelligently monitors graphics work load and increases the clock speed whenever possible. The result is that the GPU always performs at its peak and you get the highest framerate possible.
  • 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 Two New Anti-aliasing Modes: FXAA and TXAA Anti-aliasing smoothes out jagged edges but can be demanding on framerates. FXAA is a new antialiasing technology that produces beautiful smooth lines with minimal performance impact. And with Kepler based GPUs, you'll be able to enable FXAA in hundreds of game titles through the NVIDIA Control Panel. The second mode, TXAA, is an in-game option that combines MSAA, temporal filtering, and post processing for even higher visual fidelity.
  • newegg NVIDIA 3D Vision Ready NVIDIA 3D Vision brings a fully immersive, stereoscopic 3D experience to the PC. A combination of high-tech wireless glasses and advanced software, 3D Vision transforms hundreds of PC games into full stereoscopic 3D. Get up to 2x monitor and keyboard brightness with NVIDIA 3D LightBoost technology. In addition, you can enjoy 3D movies and 3D digital photographs in eye popping, crystal-clear quality.

1 out of 5 eggsMissing component - HDMI adapter

Pros: None given the missing components. Make it over priced.

Cons: Says it includes an HDMI-Mini to HDMI adapter (costs about 20 dollars), does not so the card can not run 3 monitors no matter what. As such even with $50 off it is over priced.

Other Thoughts: Thought it was a one off that was missing the adapter, got a second, it was not a one off. Do not buy from PNY, I will not do so again.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks Well but Failed Expectations

Pros: Build:
Vista 32-bit
Intel Pentium Duo Core 3.OGHz
GTX 650
Rocketfish 7.1 Surround sound card
4GB Ram
2 x 250GB HDD

Got this at Best Buy for $90.00 because of a Sale. I was originally going to get the GTX 750 TI but they didnt have it so i bought this. Increased my overall WEI from 3.8 to 4.8. I replaced my XFX Radeon HD 4350, which got a 4.6 WEI, and now with this card gets a 5.9 WEI. Runs light games very well @90fps average. (CS:S, Civ V). Looks great, easy install, does NOT take a lot of space, stays cool and quiet @30C idle.

Cons: Cannot stream/watch 1080p HD movies. It's very choppy to the point where the video becomes unwatchable. This is my rain reason to buy a card, to watch movies in 1080p. It also does not do well when playing CS: GO. Avg. FPS was 15 on High settings. The CD could not read my video card to install drivers so I had to go to Nvidia's website to download drivers for the first time.

Because I only have 15 days to return this product, I am going to return this after one full week of use. Purchsed on 03/23/2014 and will return on 03/30/2014.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Budget Gaming Card

Pros: -Small profile/footprint makes this card an ideal candidate for smaller form factor systems.
-Low cost for high performance
-Card runs quiet in my book
-Low power consumption

Cons: Can't be run in SLI
1gb version not much cheaper then 2gb. Better off buying the 2gb version. Wish I would have. In fact, I wish I would have just lept for a GTX 660. It's easy to start getting the logic of "well for just $80.00 more I can get "xyz" card which is "xyz" better

Other Thoughts: I recommend this card. If you're cheaping out and aren't getting a card at least this good, then beat your head against your desk and think again. You need AT LEAST a GTX 650 to have any sort of graphics performance for your desktop. And if you can wing it, go for a GTX 660 or higher, or at least the 2gb version of this card.

2 out of 5 eggswell it was good

Pros: it was amazing when i first got it could max alot of games with good frames and stayed nice and cool

Cons: after about 2 weeks of using it something went wrong and it started to get hot, like so hot i had to take the side of my case off and put 2 big fans next to it just so i could play skyrim on medium settings, but it got worse and couldn't even play dirt 3 with anything above low and medium settings... really disappointed with this and it was a big waste of money please don't buy

Other Thoughts: 2 weeks later from first incident... still sucks, but worse DON'T BUY

3 out of 5 eggsDecent

Pros: I purchased this card as a backup due to a GTX 660 TI being dead on arrival. It is a decent card for the price. Plays Arma 2 on Ultra. Though it will not play Hitman: Absolution with MSAA on x8. Though I believe it to be the software rather then the hardware itself. Runs 2 displays well, though it will scream at you if you do more then browse. PNY cards have never let me down. I had a 9600 GT last me years.

Cons: Runs hot while playing anything or using 2 monitors.
Fan is LOUD.
For a GTX I was expecting more, even from a cheap card.
With only 1GB of RAM and 128bit, Mid-range classification is being generous.

Other Thoughts: If your going to be running any modern games, save your money.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor experience overall

Pros: I'm required to fill this in, but all I can say is PNY offers multiple rebates, but the product workmanship is shoddy. The 9800GT I bought from several years back, the fan malfunctioned in 3 months which I had to mod the card with an Arctic Cooler Accelero.

Cons: Ordered 2, 1 worked out of the box but the other card reboots desktop. 50% success product .. I will be thinking twice before buying from PNY again. I wasn't able to return the packaging intact to NewEgg, because I cut out the POP for rebate. I hope I still get a working graphics card anyway.

Other Thoughts: And the rebate - the company is so shady. The terms was a purchase from Nov. 16 - Dec 31, 2012. I purchased Dec 10, and they received the rebate info Dec 28th, AND I WAS DENIED, due to invalid date !!!

On some other reference they used - they told me that that the rebate expired Nov 30. Am I that stupid? I would buy something outside of the rebate time.

PNY - you have lost me as a future customer.

3 out of 5 eggsNo UEFI/GOP Support

Pros: Still a good, efficient card.

Cons: Even if your system has UEFI for fancy-schmancy Windows 8 features like Secure Boot and Ultra Fast Boot, you'll still need to have the VBIOS loaded via CSM mode in your BIOS: in other words, there is no UEFI Video BIOS on this card, so you have to load part of the BIOS layer to initialize the card (i.e. get any signal out of it).

Other Thoughts: I'm in touch with PNY's support about this issue; Nvidia says that Kepler-based chips should work fine with UEFI features; thus PNY will probably need to release a VBIOS update to enable GOP (and not VESA/BIOS) functionality. Windows 8 Secure Boot will be unavailable if you use this card.

4 out of 5 eggsGood upgrade

Pros: Got this for Christmas to replace the XFX 9800 GTX that was in my computer when I got it. This card being much shorter is a definite plus as the 9800 sat on top of my SATA ports. Now I don't have to pull the video card to do anything with SATA cables. I now only have to use 1 of the 6-pin power connectors which neatens up the inside of my case a little bit.
This card runs about the same temperatures during gaming but with much less fan noise which I like very much.

Cons: No SLI support.
