ASUS GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II TOP Edition Review

Conclusion

When we first got the small 650 Ti, it was rather anticlimactic, as we are performance enthusiasts, and this card doesn’t offer that much for us. Being a more mainstream model, it simply doesn’t fit what we normally would go crazy over, but after seeing the overclock capability and what this card can do on such low power consumption we can see some serious potential here for an awesome budget gaming system.

We love that the card can play most games at relatively high settings and it stays super cool in the process. The ability to run the full 4 displays is also very nice.

We feel like ASUS could have equipped the card with 2GB memory to enable much higher available VRAM and higher resolution performance. This would have been especially great considering the rather high price point.

We feel this card has a place in many budget gaming rigs especially on looks alone but the price cannot be denied as it is 10 dollars more than competitors that can perform equal or better.
