NVIDIA launches GTX 660 and GTX 650 cards

Nivida sends out two new babies into the world: the GTX 660 and GTX 650. Both are Kepler-based graphics cards that bring big performance for a bit of a lower price. You'll get DirectX 11 tessellation, PhsyX, and TXAA with these cards, with performance that is on par some of the last generation's better cards.

Are you still running older GPUs? Maybe it's time for an upgrade.

Nvidia says that that with the 660, for example, you'll see improvements of up to 60 percent over a GTX 560, and four times the performance of the old 9800 GT. Their charts show that its performance is in line with the GTX 580! Hey, it hits triple digits in Diablo III. This card in particular might be the new 'bang for the buck' GPU. 

The 650 looks to be a hell of a deal at just over $100. This cute little card (seriously, it's squatty!) is doing well (about 40 fps) running popular games at 1920x1080 at medium-to-high settings, says Nvidia.

The GeForce GTX 660 (MSRP $229) and GTX 650 (MSRP $109) are available today from several manufacturers.
