With Nvidia's naming scheme I'm having a lot of trouble looking for a card that isn't a repackaged fermi or even older architecture.

For example I was looking at the GT640, but the GF116 GPU is Fermi, basically the same from a 550Ti except for some differences like GDDR3 instead of GDDR5.

Is there a list?

The GT640 uses a GK107 GPU with Kepler architecture, and its a lot more different from the GF116 than just the memory type. The entire GeForce 600 series use the Kepler architecture that was introduced in this serie.

The entire range? the 630 is a GF108 from the GT400 according to wikipedia –  Ghost Apr 20 '13 at 2:11
    
A GeForce 400 series using Kepler? Nonsense. The 600 series is introducing the Kepler architecture to the market, no other serie used it before. –  Havenard Apr 20 '13 at 3:31
    
I'm looking at the charts in the wikipedia link from your post –  Ghost Apr 24 '13 at 22:41
    
Unfortunately, Nvidia (and AMD) will put out new cards using old GPUs. So the lower end of Nvidia's 600 series will contain old gpus in it. Usually the high end stuff has all the new cool stuff, but the low end cheap stuff may not, as people don't question what is in it. OEMs like to use this hardware, making their stuff look better then it is. Mobile parts are especially bad. –  MJD Aug 24 '13 at 15:55
