This is a nice deal. Just keep in mind this isn't the 2GB version like the reference GTX650 Ti Boost, it's a 1GB version which makes it less future proof. This is close to the sale price I've seen for the slower GTX650 Ti (non-Boost). The Boost version is a lot faster because they not only increased the clocks plus added Boost but also gave it faster memory (5.4GHz vs 6GHz), larger memory bus (128-bit vs 192-bit, 86.4GB/s vs 144.2GB/s), and more ROPs (16 vs 24).

Also the price is 124.99 and not 109.99 anymore.
The GTX 650 Ti Boost is close to double the performance of the GTX650. The GTX650 uses the GK107 GPU which has 384SPs. The GTX650 Ti Boost uses a cut down GK106 that has 768SPs (down from the 960SPs in the GTX660, but same as the GTX650 Ti non-Boost but it's much faster due to the previously differences). Don't look at Nvidia's horrible naming (three cards starting with GTX650 is pretty ridiculous), look at the performance: source
(just note again this review is of the GTX650 Ti Boost 2GB version, depending on game and res used this may not be an issue but keep this in mind).Edited by Ben the OCer - 7/23/13 at 6:51pm
