If your’re in the market for a new graphic card, then Nvidia’s latest GeForce cards might be interesting. The company today announced the GeForce GTX 660 and the GeForce GTX 650 which use Nvidia’s Kepler chip while being reasonably affordable. With the addition of the GeForce GTX 660 and GTX 650, the Kepler family has now six graphics cards spanning $109 to $999.

The GTX 690, 680, and 670 are marketed as enthusiast products and offer the highest performance.  The GTX 660 Ti is on the cusp of ‘high-end’, offering a level of performance higher than that of last-generation’s flagship GPU, the GTX 580, for $100 less than the GTX 670.

The new GTX 660, unveiled today, is a mid-range GPU offering a balance between performance and price without sacrificing any of the features seen on the aforementioned cards. Today’s other new GPU, the GTX 650, is an budget entry-level product. The GeForce GTX 660 is a $229 mid-range GPU built around a new Kepler chip codenamed GK106 and runs, according to Nvidia,  almost all games using high quality DirectX 11 settings at 1920×1080. It has 960 CUDA cores, 2 GB of memory and a TDP of 150 watts.

The GeForce GTX 650 is Nvidia’s entry level gaming GPU and starts at $109. The GPU is powered by 384 CUDA Cores and has 1GB of dedicated memory and, according to Nvidia,  the GeForce GTX 650 plays most of today’s games at medium quality or higher at 1920×1080. It has a TDP of 64 watts and has a Kepler GK107 chip.

The GTX660 is worth considering, but the GTX650 is pretty bad considering it's very wishy-washy when it comes to performance across multiple titles.

Yes, I agree the GT660 is excellent price and performance, I just like to support AMD, so I'll probably not buy one
