    GPU is what matters the most when talking about Gaming computers so I wouldn't go cheap on it :P Altho 650 is still a very high end GPU.

    Why don't you just get rid of the Sidewinder, get some crappy keyboard and get a better video card, it'll be a lot better in the long run.

    I wouldn't call the 650 Ti a high end card, it's more like a low - medium spec card.

    I can think of only 2 games that the card wouldn't be able to play on maximum graphics..
