I work with point cloud data so I can't comment on this card for gaming, but when viewing multiple laser scans our cards take some heavy loads!! You can hear the load and the fans kick into high gear -- a great way to test what these cards can really handle.
At work we use some of the latest 3 and 4gb nvidia cards, while easily eating 32gb of ram like nothing. Point cloud data loves ram! I bought this card for my "work at home" pc and so far it handles data pretty close to our 3gb cards at the office. Though I can hear the card kick into high gear, its remains smooth and quiet while doing so.
I chose Gigabyte, because their reputation is good. I own one of their Z77 motherboards and have been more than happy. I don't care for the VGA display port on this card (probably never use it) - but I do appreciate that Gigabyte covers its bases making their cards suitable for users of all types. The extra DVI and HDMI display ports on the back + my trust in their name is what weighed my choice to buy this over the competing Zotac and EVGA 2gb cards.
My expectations verses the actual benchmarks on the 650ti left me slightly disappointed. I was expecting it to cross that median - bringing it closer to the 660 that the 650 non ti card. When comparing the prices of each and knowing you get what you pay for, I guess I shouldn't be.
Wish I had the extra money for a 4gb 670 or 680 card, but I don't. I'm pleased with my purchase so far and would buy it again.
