I am wondering if the 550 ti is a good card as it is somewhat cheaper than the gtx 460. my resolution is only 1440 x 900. Also, can i install that onto a mATX motherboard?

Thank you

It's OK. I wouldn't brag about that card, but it has some nice features. It's smaller, and cheap, but if you have the money, get the 460. It's alot more powerful. What games do you want to play, and what is your motherboard?

It can come close in performance to a stock gtx 460 and use less power but is already close to its max right out of the box. They suffer from the same power vrm issue as the gtx 460 but less likely to fail after a few months use due to lower power use.

well SC2 mainly depends on your CPU. I assume with a 2500k you're going to OC it at sometime? Anyway, if you just want to play SC2 then a 550 ti should be good.

They're not n00b question. Choosing a GPU is really hard, so much to factor it.
