    Default Matching GPU to ASRock specific motherboard

    Hello,
    Lately I bought Battlefield 3 and I decided to buy a GPU that'll actually run it (unlike my Intel HD Graphics).
    I have the i3 2100 3.1 GHz on the ASRock H61M-VS motherboard. I was thinking to buy the GeForce GTX 650, and I just don't know how good will it match my motherboard, and if there's more succeful combination.
    Thanks a head.

    I will recommend a GTX 650ti or HD 7770, they are very good at p/p
    I'm using a Galaxy GTX 650ti with Asrock 970 pro3 mobo, smooth gaming so far
    ( MSI or Asus vga cards should be better )

    Both of my MSI N460GTX Hawk video cards have been excellent.
    I prefer to buy higher end video cards within a model family as they often offer better cooling, lower temperatures and less fan noise.

    The GTX 650 Ti video cards offer better performance and have a higher selling price.
    Buying a better video card will usually let you use higher in game quality settings and offer better gaming performance.

    HardOCP just reviewed the recently released GTX 650 Ti Boost video card.
    HARDOCP - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Video Card Review
    From the HardOCP conclusion:
    Performance - On performance, the new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost offers the same gameplay experience as the Radeon HD 7850. We found that the gameplay experience was the same in every game, but the performance itself was actually slightly faster with the GTX 650 Ti Boost. Compared to the new Radeon HD 7790, the gameplay experience was superior on the GeForce GTX 650 Ti in every single game. Plus, the performance itself just smashed the HD 7790.

    Value Summary - The new GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost competes not with the Radeon HD 7790, which was just announced days ago, but in fact it competes with AMD's next model up, the Radeon HD 7850. However, the GTX 650 Ti is priced at the Radeon HD 7790's level. Therefore what you get is Radeon HD 7850-like experience, for less money. The clear value is the new GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost.

    NVIDIA current pricing lines up like this as of today according to NVIDIA:
    $109 - GeForce GTX 650
    $129 - GeForce GTX 650 Ti
    $149 - GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST 1GB
    $169 - GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST 2GB
    $199 - GeForce GTX 660

    The Bottom Line
    If we haven't made it clear yet, the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost is a good upgrade if you are on an aging Radeon HD 7770, or GeForce GTX 650. The GTX 650 Ti Boost will get you a substantial performance improvement. If your choice is between the Radeon HD 7790 or GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost, the new GTX 650 Ti Boost is the better option for a better gameplay experience. If you are trying to decide between a Radeon HD 7850 and a GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost, we'd have to go with the GTX 650 Ti Boost. It offered slightly better performance; just make sure you get the 2GB model. And it is less expensive.

    We had to double check the price of the GeForce GTX 650 Ti with NVIDIA after experiencing the performance delivered. It seemed like the performance delivered for the price was too good to be true. NVIDIA confirmed that the 1GB GTX 650 Ti will be $149, and the 2GB model will be $169. The GeForce GTX 650 Ti delivers the best performance we've ever seen at the $150-160 price segment. It truly is phenomenal, and we are impressed at what has been delivered to gamers.

    We aren't just buttering you up, when we talk about value and getting the best bang for the buck; the GeForce GTX 650 Ti is the definition of that. NVIDIA could have easily sold the GTX 650 Ti for the higher price point of $170-$180 and it would still be a good deal. The fact that it will be $150-$160 is just incredible. Those gamers on a budget don't have to settle for a poor gaming experience. The GeForce GTX 650 Ti will allow budget gamers to play today's latest games at high settings at 1080p for $150-$160.

    We are very excited to get in some retail custom built GTX 650 Ti Boost cards so we can see what extreme overclocking can bring performance up to. The GeForce GTX 650 Ti easily earns our HardOCP Editorís Choice Gold award.
