I am about to get a new computer with the video card "PCI Express NVIDIA GTX 650 series" and I just wanted to confirm if it is supported for the DK2, could you please confirm...

Thanks a lot in advance.

I'm using a gtx 750 in one of my pcs and it handles the DK2 ok most of the time, but noticibly less smooth than a gtx 780 for heavy loads. I don't think a 650 is enough.

Ok, so from the GTX 780 and above is all going to be the same? I just want to save some buck but without sacrifying any performance of the DK2

You should be thinking about the consumer version coming soon, if you plan on getting one. 780 is probably not enough, but who knows?
You better wait if money is a real object, and see the reviews of users with various setups. 780 is enough for a dk2, but CV1 will be much better, and supposedly requires at least a GTX 970. Currently I think the 780 is even more expensive than a 970, don't know why.
Personally, I'm planning to get a gtx 980, unless something changes by next spring.

According to the DK2 recommended specs (which was easily found by typing 'DK2 recommended specs' in google) it states that at least a GTX 600 series is required.

That being said, it also states: 'In addition to the minimum spec it is recommended that your dedicated graphics card be capable of running current generation 3D games at 1080p resolution at 75fps or higher.'

I have a GTX 660 and it just barely BARELY cuts it. I can run most apps in the Rift acceptably as long as the graphics are set to low. You will probably not get satisfactory results with a 650...

Rough ballpark, you need something that can run 1440p at over 60fps solid.

GTX650? Err not, not even on low.
DK1 FREAK...

been stuck on a 650 for quite a while, did the job but am finally getting my 970 next week and it couldn't come fast enough. a 650 will currently run but I'd invest in a 970 and the appropriate system as who know if some architectural change will mean a 970 minimum but either way I loved my 650 for keeping me in the loop this long, but can't wait for a 970 so I can experience judder free and more immersive experiences on a larger scale than the 650 allowed for.

It may technically work (in fact, it is the oldest Nvidia card that will even be supported at all), however, performance will likely be slow or choppy for many demos. It's recommended to use a GTX 970 for the best experience.
