As it happens, NVIDIA has just launched that very product -- a friskier version of the GTX 650 with extra Cuda cores -- keeping Maingear in lockstep with its graphics board suppliers again (http://www.engadget.com/2012/01/09/maingear-says-it-will-offer-the-amd-radeon-hd-7970-in-its-shift/). That card will fill the gap between the $229 GeForce GTX 660 and $109 GTX 650 (http://www.engadget.com/2012/09/13/nvidia-geforce-gtx-660-650/) cards and run $149 (estimated), while Maingear has said it will feature special F131 and Potenza GTX 650 Ti systems at $150 off, along with a free copy of Assassin Creed III. So, if you need all the fps you can get, but can't quite pony up for the more desirable (http://www.engadget.com/2012/09/14/nvidia-geforce-gtx-650-and-660-review-roundup/) GTX 660, check the PR for more details.
