MSI is planning to make an addition to its Power Edition family of performance graphics cards with one based on the GeForce GTX 650. Pictured below, the MSI GeForce GTX 650 Power Edition OC is a factory-overclocked graphics card, featuring a custom-design PCB, and the same TransThermal cooling solution featured on its Radeon HD 7770 Power Edition OC graphics card. The cooler gives users a high level of flexibility over air-flow by letting them stack up two fans, or alongside each other, directing air to two areas of the aluminum fin heatsink. Unlike with the HD 7770 PE OC, the GTX 650-based model features silver+black color scheme on the cooler shroud.

Wonder how this fares against AMD's similar offerings.

Common wisdom is, the 650 using GK-107 2-SMX 128-bit for $140, and probably won’t best a 7750 even if OC'd! and would it have/need a 6-pin?

I already have a GTX 550 TI, this seems like a waste of time to buy its the same damn card.

Here you have it, Nvidia marketing so the grain of salt is mandatory:
Not bad but that's probably for 1280x as the GT640 was shown trailing by 32%; while at 1680x the 7750 was 50% above the GT 640.

I already have a GTX 550 TI, this seems like a waste of time to buy its the same damn card.
u2konline said it... if Nvidia can bring GTX550Ti performance at the mainstream resolution with 75W TDP (no 6-pin) they'll have something. This might explain AMD supposed "900MHz Edition" has seen press, although that's said to get a 6-pin... would be smarter to designate it as a 7755..
