    PNY launched two GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost graphics cards under its XLR8 (accelerate) brand. The base model (VCGGTX650TBQXPB) sticks to NVIDIA reference clock speeds of 980 MHz core, 1033 MHz GPU Boost, and 6.00 GHz memory; while an OC variant (VCGGTX650TBQXPB-OC) features factory-overclocked speeds of 1006 MHz core, 1072 MHz GPU Boost, and 6.00 GHz memory.

    Both cards appear to be based on designs originally made by Palit. Based on the 28 nm GK106 silicon, the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost packs 768 CUDA cores, 56 TMUs, 24 ROPs, and a 192-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, holding 2 GB of memory. The base model PNY XLR8 GTX 650 Ti Boost is priced at US $169.99, while the OC variant goes for $179.99.

    Those extra 20$ are probably for Lifetime warranty.

    For $200$ Forget-about-it..! I wouldn't give PNY $30 for their Lifetime warranty, the average user will need to be upgrading this in less than 3 years.
    $180 is already really pushing it for boost cards, I'd only consider something that's both heavily OC'd and with rear exhaust that's quiet for a $180 price. That looks like any off the shelf generic H-P cooler and two fans. What give's you these things aren't suppose to be needing that much, they're suppose to be good on power and heat right?
