    With the open-source Nouveau driver, the GeForce GTX 650/660 graphics cards might work when the PCI IDs are there
    Nouveau does not use PCI IDs. Its modalias makes it load on any display device with a vendor ID from NVIDIA. The driver then checks the chip family (without using PCI IDs) and starts driving the device if the family is known, which is the case for Kepler (NVEx chips - the GK107 is found to identify itself as NVE7).

        Well, $230 USD is lower cost than the GTX 680 at $500, the GTX 670 at $400, and the GTX 660 Ti at $300.

        The GTX 650 is also launching today at $109 MSRP.

          low power kepler

          It's about time they released a single PCI-E plug kepler card. I was beginning to think i was going to be stuck on my GTS450 forever in my silverstone SG05. There are only 350 watts of power available, and only 9" of length. So even the 550Ti was too power hungry.

          I keep hearing good things about the modern ATI cards/drivers, but i still see lots of "${FOO} doesn't work on wine with ATI, works fine with nvidia".

            This is really hardly an argument. The solution, which you are seeking, is either correct written native software, or windows running in parallel with linux under some kind of hardware hypervisor with full access to hardware. Because, even if wine is really great wrapper, there will always be bugs and chases.. This isn't a long term solution, nor there is a guarantee for software pieces to start working ok under wine automagically after specific time amount.
