It could be a great help to include info like at which settings the game passed the 30fps (that I believe is the minimum for acceptable gameplay), at least in the tested games that every card is below 30fps, like metro.

Very nicely done. Instead of the GTX640 I would've rather seen the GTX650(Non-Ti) which is the same as the GTX640 but with DDR5. Would like to see a 7770 OC like the Sapphire 1100Mhz along with the reference 7770. And then the 7870 with just 1Gb as those are averaging $150 –AR.

The real take-away is the GTX650Ti likes memory clock speed it always seemed to give improvement far and above sheer clock speed. But if someone thinking of getting nice card like the Gigabyte you don’t need the 2Gb, the Zotac has nice connection but that generic cooler doesn’t bode for the lofty price.

GTX650Ti can stretch to 1920x1080... barley, so it’s not a good buy for a price >$130. The right buy for 1920x is a 7850 1Gb and OC it 1030Mhz it is the BFB leader! While not big a that Zotac 640, it can be had in the States for $47 –AR$20 and at that price it can't be faulted.

The 7850 1GB is $170+ to $200 right now in usa bottom price crap brand.

Yeah, that's the one to get instead of the $120 650ti.

"Yes, it is priced adequately, as its performance is somewhere in between that of the Radeon HD 7850 2GB and Radeon HD 7770 1GB. But this is where the question is: who is the primary competitor for GeForce GTX 650 Ti in this case? "

Pretty easy: people who can afford slightly more expensive card than 7770, but not quite 7850, as price gap between two is about as big as performance gap. 650Ti fits there nicely and provides an option for mentioned group of folks.

You'd been hard pressed to shell out more than $100-115 -AR for a 7770's here in the states even 3 months after their Feb 15,2012 release. Most all of the GTX650Ti should have been MSRP ± $130 (14%) higher. But "NO" Nvidia had most everything with OC monikers with $160+, which was instantly "nuts" to everyone, just as this review substantiates. Sure if they would've been a couple of months apart in releases understandable, but when they show 8 months late? Nvidia should've gotten real, and price according to performance. Nvidia knew where in the market they landed, but obstinately only saturated the market with Über versions that by this review don't bring enough. They've recently figured they weren't selling, so now some good buys have been in $115-125 –AR. Then what really dispelled Nvidias' pricing was the 7850 1Gb's it was like they ignored that altogether even if it was in the market.

What I'd like to see is a 7770 at 1100Mhz like the Sapphire Vapor-X; "mano-a-mano" against the best in this round-up... then OC both and see who comes out on top price/performance.

The 7770's were $200 at launch, and $160 to $180 forever, and you can still barely find one anywhere here in the USA for $115 unless it's refurbished.
You people not only rewrite very recent history, you lie about the present.
Do you believe you own lies?

Yeh she is a overclocking beast. Love that card, It cost me next to nothing and has the performance of the 300 dollar cards.
Mine is a MSI version and has a bit different fan and never passes 45c. However the overclocking stability is around the same as the one reviewed.

Don't know why people are talking about the 7770. It is a decent card (and I am a AMD head) But I am sorry the 650TI Performs better. The 7770 is longer but thats about all it has on the 650Ti. I had a 5850 which is a older but better card than the 7770. And my 650Ti leaves my old 5850 in the dust. However you are not going to be hurting at all buying a 7770. Because these class of cards will only be good for a couple of years anyway before we have to upgrade and buy new ones.
