Upgrading video card for Skyrim

Last response: in Video Games

I am currently thinking about upgrading my graphics card in order to have the best possible gameplay for Skyrim, currently my computers specs are:

AMD FX 4100-quad core @ 3.6 GHz
nvidia Geforce GT 440 (1GB ddr3)
Asus M5A 78L-M LX Plus motherboard.
(the hardrive and dvd rom are both just the generic ones that i bought for cheap)

My question is this: I am upgrading the graphics card, and while I'm fairly certain which one is the right choice, I would like to be sure and get others opinions. I am deciding between these 2:

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti (


NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 (

So those are the 2 choices, same price ($119), which one should I get?

Also if I posted in the wrong forums please let me know, I'm new to this site and will change it to the proper one and delete this thread.

between those two get the gtx650 as its more efficient than 550ti while performing similarly.
