I just bought the galaxy GeForce GTX 550 from TigerDirect.com and I was wondering which graphics card is a better for gaming and everyday computing, GTX 550 or the GTX 560? and please keep it clean.

More about : gtx 550 gtx 560

For everyday computing it doesn't really matter

For gaming the GTX 560 is better than the GTX 550

GTX 550 Ti < GTX 560 < GTX 560 Ti

Even though the 550 Ti is clocked slightly higher than the 560 it has nearly half the number of cores (192 vs 336)

of course 560. I recommand gigabyte for his quiet fans and good heat dissipation

I agree with dalaran and lkkgg72200812

Choose 560 series, the 560 Ti or 560 is good.

The pricing is usually a good indicator (although not every time).

For everyday computing, Intel HD Graphics should be enough - or some other, onboard graphics card like Geforce 7025, Radeon HD3000 series, Radeon HD4250, etc. You shouldn't be looking at something in the GTX 550 Ti/GTX 560 price range for everyday computing. You should be looking at the idle power sausage instead.

But what happens if you don't want to block the one of the slot with the 560Ti wouldn't the 550Ti the only choice?
