    That said, even though I have that, I'm using Intel drivers at the moment. Hooray for NVIDIA not supporting kernel 3.11...
    My linux desktop (running a Mex 12.10 distro) died like 4 months ago. For some reason I kept trying other things instead of just replacing the graphics card.
    I guess the long work hours were just burning me out lowering my IQ or something. Well anyways a few days ago after seeing phoronix's tests with the GTX 650 I checked the prices online and thought. "hmmm, maybe I'll just replace the graphics card and see if it fixes my desktop."

    So I bought an open box free shipping gtx 650 for $101. It just arrived a few hours ago.

    I installed it and everything works now. I have my linux desktop back!!
    Checked Nvidia Xserver settings and it says it's a GTX 660 and it has 2048 ram. I'm going huh?? So I checked the paperwork that came with it (it says gtx 660) and the picture on it of the connections matches the connections on the one I just installed.
