Gigabyte GTX 650 Ti 2GB Windforce 2X
Instead of showing you how the GTX 650 Ti compares against the competition (HD 7850 1GB, a card which no manufacturer would supply us with), we thought it would be more informative to show our readers how the card performs in some of the hottest DX11 gaming titles around.
As you can see from the above, in all cases except Borderlands 2 (a game that we are very fond of), the GTX 650 Ti will suffice for smooth 60fps gameplay with medium quality 1080p image presets. Lowering the resolution to 720p will allow you to use higher image quality settings if you can tolerate jagged edges.
It should also handle older DirectX 9 games like WoW and Counter-Strike Global Offensive with relative ease, since they don't trouble even the (latest generation of) integrated graphics now anyway.
