In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Club3D CoolStream Super OC 1GB Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 MSI 1GB.

The GTX 650 has a 158 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 560, but the GTX 560 has 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 650. As a result, the GTX 560 exhibits a 16.5 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 650. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 650 has a 158 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 560, but the GTX 560 has 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX 650. As a result, the GTX 560 exhibits a 11.9 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 650. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 650 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 560, and so the GTX 650 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 560.

The GeForce GTX 560 Club3D CoolStream Super OC 1GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 650 MSI 1GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 560 has 51.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 650, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 560 is much better than the GTX 650.

The GeForce GTX 560 Club3D CoolStream Super OC 1GB Edition has 336 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 650 MSI 1GB has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 is 605 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 650 is 406. The GTX 560 having 199 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 560 delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 650.

The GTX 650 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 560. This means that the GTX 650 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 560.

The GeForce GTX 560 Club3D CoolStream Super OC 1GB Edition requires 176 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce GTX 650 MSI 1GB. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 560.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate a 7% Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GTX 560.
GeForce GTX 650 MSI 1GB is a special edition of the fast-middle-class GeForce GTX 650 1GB.
This special edition comes with a custom cooling solution called Propeller Blade Technology, which generates 20% more airflow than traditional fan design, according to MSI and no other change that affects performance directly.
Therefore, its gaming performance is exactly like the reference GeForce GTX 650 1GB and that the most demanding games (Metro 2033, The Witcher II, etc) still require reduced settings while modern demanding games (Battlefield 3, Max Payne 3) are playable at high settings but not paired with extreme resolutions.
