GTX 650 TI does NOT exist! My review.
Avoid the GTX 650 TI because: Geforce own specs do not match up to card. You cannot register the warranty. The Geforce warranty section has a dropdown and does not list the 650 TI The GTX 650 TI does not have a "Part number". After many days trying to track down some way to register my non-existent Geforce GTX 650 TI, I discovered that Geforce not only has no means to register the warranty, but there is mixed specs and image of the GTX 650 TI. The information for the GTX 650 TI is misleading. Also, it would seem that the only support Geforce offers is a redirect to rely on forum participants helping one another. But, it's not all bad...

PROs:
  • Card slipped in nice and easy.
  • fan is super quiet - as of now.
  • Plays CRYSIS 3 quite well.


CONS:
  • The specs do not match the card.
  • Images do not match the card.
  • There is only one VGA connector and the other two are DVI-D.
  • nothing on box, the contents, or card match up to anything on the Geforce site.


SUMMARY: While the card is cool looking, quiet, and lets Crysis 3 play nicely, the wrong images online, the wrong spec data, and lack of support by the manufacturer and inability to register the warranty for the product make it an 'avoid at all costs'.

Are you sure both the DVI connectors are DVI-D? One of them should be DVI-I and will support a VGA monitor using a DVI to VGA adapter. You can tell it's DVI-I if it has 4 pins around the small slot at one end. The DVI-D connector does not have these 4 pins.

The image link says it all. The adapters I ordered from China arrived. One end is female VGA plug. The other end, is the male that would go in to the DVI-D - but, as you pointed out, nothing shows on 2nd monitor. I was hopeful. No idea why the female VGA to DVI-D. None of this makes any sense any more. The image link to the adapter and the link to the card specs, show that the adapter will fit, but VGA, to DVI. At the risk of being a thorn and repetitive, what kind of monitor would I need in order to utilize this card so I get ay least 2, if not more monitors going? nVidia control panel shows 4 adapters, two monitors plugged in, but no display on 2nd.

So, if you want to register your graphics card you have to do it at the manufacturer's website. In your case Gigabyte? Only thing nVidia will provide you is the drivers on their site and some tech support to get things working right (actual RMA and hardware related problems has to be dealt with the manufacturer), the warrenty for the actual hardware comes from the company who assembled it and not nVidia.

I recently purchased the GTX 650 TI from best buy. Seem to be a great card, however its heat sink enclosure seems as if its designed for a 660. Did I buy a hybrid model? Part number 900-12030-2511-000. The package box has nvidia only so I assume its manufactured from them directly.

Internaut... Chill out... Okay? Just chill. :) The 650Ti does exist. You just worried yourself because you didn't know what you were buying. You will not find the 650Ti's on the Nvidia site because they ALLOW third parties to manufacture Nvidia cards themselves, especially in the case of the 650Ti, which is a very reasonably performing card within a very reasonable price range. (a niche within a niche) You can see in the first 30 secs of this video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJI8f81a9IA&feature=youtube_gdata_player you can see how different the 2 cards are, yet they're both 660Ti's. Now, if you also type '650Ti' in to Google Images, you'll see how different the design varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. Gigabyte make kick-ass cards! So if you have any questions about warranty, go to the Gigabyte website. As for the problem you're having with your monitor, I'd suggest NOT using any Adapter at all. Buy a monitor with DVI input, and it will come with a DVI cable you can plug straight in to your video card. Good luck.

I think i have the same one. There is no other company branding on it. Just NVIDIA.
