The ti is the better performing card. Your machine and a 650ti will play games and you will get a boost of performance but it wont be ridiculously huge. Should smooth out frames depending on what settings you want to play at (not high).

there is a difference between those 2 cards. the 650 with the TI is a better card. it will improve your graphics.

your computer is older and is nearing the time at which no more performance can be had from the gpu and you will be limited by your cpu and ram.

you would need to replace the whole computer to see improvements for modern games at high settings.

what is your budget?
