Actually I own to of the evga 650ti boost superclocked editions and run them in sli, and they are absolutely a great performance per price gpu. I built a new intel rig, it being the first pc I have put together in a long time, and I did a nice higher quality build 4670k with 256ssd, 16 gb of ddr3 ram, etc. I originally had this graphics card from my father in laws pc he gave me. It ran everything I played at high settings like a champ never getting to loud and or hot. I upgraded further and then got an ultra wide resolution IPS monitor. I upgraded to sli but before I did I played games on one card at the native res, being to lazy to adjust to normal hd. This card does surprisingly well with hitting high frequency speeds, around 1200 with just the normal fan in the card cooling. I have been very satisfied with this sli set up so far( knock on wood) and it has played everything I have at high to max with no real noticeable micro stuttering except when trying to play max on Battlefield 4 which is just more of the fact that it cannot handle reasonable fps on the setting. I would recommend this card to the budget builder seeing as this has gone down in price since the arrival of the 760, but for anyone wanting more future proof and whom plays more demanding titles...sadly this card will not be enough for that unless in sli. I would recommend something more than a 660 for that just because of how demanding the games that are and will becoming out are.
The 650 Ti Boost is listed as 2GB, yet the linked product is 2GB and discontinued.
I think that the ratio price / performance is better for the GTX 650 Ti Boost:
