GTX 550 Ti vs. Radeon HD 6850

I know that the Radeon HD 6850 is a better card, but how much better? I am just wanting a card that can play BF3 at a good setting and frame rate. I would be using a 1366x768 monitor so I know I can get good performance with both. Is the 6850 worth the extra 30 bucks?

    Quite a bit. I'd be willing to spend $30 more for the 6850, especially if you're planning on playing BF3. For settings, at your resolution, you could probably manage medium with a decent framerate. I think the 550ti would struggle even with medium.
  5. Medium? I saw a vid of BF3 running at 30 FPS on Ultra with the 6850?
