I have this one, and it's more than enought in my Opinion

Some people rate this gpu as it is expected to run everything on super ultra high on recent games but they have no clue when this card was released. For those who don't know it's already a 7-8 years old GPU. So stop being demanding and also try to test this gpu with a decent cpu paired and it runs almost everything adjusting the settings ofc.

I despise 2 things about this card. 1. It's literally the same performance as the 550 Ti. 2. The cheapest 650 as of the time i'm typing this is $65. You can get a 580 or a 570 for just below or above that price and get TWICE the performance. Now THAT SAID, $112 to $250 for the same performance is pretty good.

I have a GTX 650 in my low budget PC that I'm slowly upgrading (just the GPU now!). I have a lower resolution monitor but even I have trouble using this thing for much. As much as I have a strange fondness for my lil' GTX 650 just putting along, you really don't want to buy a GTX 650 for modern-day gaming. And if you want a low end graphics card just to play some much older or just far less intensive games then you may aswell try and get a GTX 750 or 750-Ti (look around a bit) for only a little bit more. (In the U.K. used as of 2019. GTX 650: ~£25 - 30; GTX 750: ~£35 - 40; GTX 750-Ti: ~£45 - £50).
