Should I exchange my EVGA GTX 550 Ti for a GTX 460?

I bought a GTX 550 Ti thinking I made the smart buy but digging further it seems the consensus is the GTX 460 is the superior card.

Is there that big of a difference between the two cards? And does the GTX 460 being only 768Mb run the risk of not playing games that inevitable require 1Gig GPUs?

See http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/radeon-hd-6790-barts-gpu-... for a comparison they are both on. I think 768Mb is good for anything below 1920x1080 at this setting im not sure. If you can just get the 1Gb version, but at the end of the day even the 768Mb version should give around 10% more FPS than the 550ti.

Thanks for the link. I think I'll end up going with the ATI 6790. It kills the GTX 550 Ti in almost every way.

Before I rush out and buy another bad card, does anyone have anything bad to say about the Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 6790?

The 6790 is a good card its just in that price bracket when an extra 10-15 bucks is nearly always worth it. Let us know where you are buying it from or what the price is on all cards you may consider and we can let you know the best buy.

Sapphire has had a lot good reviews and comments for a long time and it makes great cards, 6790 is not an exception
