I picked this GPU up as a part of a parts package knowing it was non-working. After cleaning it up, it now consistently "works", however its clocks are stuck at the 2D (idle) speeds and it will not ramp up to its full speed. So it runs Windows great but for any modern 3D gaming it's... glacial.
For comparison, a GT 640 gets 20 FPS in Furmark's 720p preset benchmark. This 650 Ti only gets 9 FPS. Half a GT 640 is not exactly impressive territory.
I'm throwing this out there since 9 FPS in that benchmark isn't literally the worst thing imaginable. The HD 4250 integrated graphics on my Phenom II X4 gets 1 FPS. So this could be quite a good upgrade for someone running Core2Duo or Athlon II/Phenom II integrated graphics who can't afford $20 for a better card.
