    Here are some of the first pictures of NVIDIA partner-branded GeForce GTX 660 and GeForce GTX 650. The EVGA GeForce GTX 660 SuperClocked, pictured below, is roughly as long as the company's GTX 660 Ti and GTX 670 graphics cards. It uses the EVGA Signature cooling solution, which features on several of EVGA's GeForce GTX 660 Ti, GTX 670, and GTX 680 models. The box doesn't reveal much, except that the card only supports 2-way SLI, and packs 2 GB of GDDR5 memory.

    The EVGA GeForce GTX 650, on the other hand, is much more compact. It uses a simple fan-heatsink to cool the GPU, instead of elaborate aluminum fin stacks. The heatsink appears to feature a spirally-projecting aluminum fin design, and is cooled by a 70 mm fan. The fan-heatsink is topped off with a shroud that spans the entire length of the card. Much like the GTX 660 SC, the box of this card doesn't reveal much. The GeForce GTX 660 and GeForce GTX 650 are expected to launch on September 12 (give or take a day, in view of the new iPhone launch).

    I'm excited to see how creative manufacturers are going to be regarding custom coolers for 650.

    Who cares. Those cards aren't really good for sli anyways and you can get better performance for around the same price if you just got a 670.

    This GTX650 will be so slow that I would be amazed if it will surpass the 7750. So even two of these would be very far from a GTX670.

    Majority of users out there dont even know what SLI or Crossfire is and they only run 1 video card as is. Most OEM systems built still dont have SLI or Crossfire capability, not even PSUs are capable of multicard configs in those machines. Those who know crossfire/SLI and have a capable machine would be going for atleast a 670 for this current gen.

    And getting a low gpu thinking in buying one more in the future when you need more power is a waste of money. If you find a deal or a second hand one and then you compare how much you will cost a newer model, probably the newer is the best bang for buck. Multi gpu is for people with money, not for saving it.

    You still can use SLI via the PCI-Express bus. Just like any other low end cards.

    Yes :p

    Hmm the 650 could be great in my mini PC, all i need to know is how many Watts it takes and the performance against a 7770

    The only time you see multi-card configurations benefit is when you have the fastest GPU. Dual GPU cards are a decent solution and tend to outlast even the next gen.

    That's what I meant, but even is not always the best. I got 2 7950gt once, then not so much later the 8800gtx appeared. You know the story. I still regret and my wallet still hurts. Not dual gpu config until I win the lottery or I inherit from some unknown rich uncle.

    Well in my case SLI/CF is nice, as I have twin teens boys. I find that I'll get each the same model upgrade , then some point down the road move one to the dual card set-up, while the other gets a comparable new gen card. Then when price on the new card (single) I've got drops into the right price I upgrade the other, dumping the two old one as individuals.

    The problem here is 650 is just not going to be the sweet spot for what I'd see as a next move. It would be at least the 660Ti territory to make worth my time. For that father in my same predicament who might consider this (just now starting); it has no merit over the 7770 which been the BfB in entry gaming and will remain. For young kid's gaming, starting out with this Nvidia isn't going to be any consideration.
