id give it about a 6 at stock settings, but ive seen some nasty overlocks on these cards just like the 560ti, if you can get a card with overvolting capability and a good cooler you should be able to play most everything on high at 1080p no AA of course, and maybe some eyecandy turned down but its a good card for sure

I would say 7 for 1080p, If you are on 1080p in that budget I'd better buy something like 6790. If you are playing at 1600x900 or 1680x1050 or below I'd say 8.5. It's pretty decent.

6850 at 145 is much better than it, if you can find it for 110, grab it

I'd give it a 6. It's OK, but for the price you're better off with a Radeon 6850 or a GTX 460 1GB (if you can find it) as both cards are significantly faster. Even a 6790 is a little faster and a better value, but of course it uses too much power for me to say it's better outright :D .

4. I really don't recommend the 550ti for anyone as its significantly weaker than the 460 for around the same price and I really don't think it makes sense at it's price point.

550ti is one of the crappiest cards Nvidia has ever made.

I used to think no card would take the honor away from the 5800. Then they gave us the GTX465.... GTX550 isn't THAT bad headspin.

Well when you can get a Radeon HD 6850 that just mops the floor for just $10 or $20 more than the 550ti becomes a terrible card however if it were in the proper price bracket it should be in like under $100 then it would be a good card because that is the price bracket of its competition.

There is a difference between bad, terrible, and worst ever made. Worst ever made for Nvidia is either the FX5800, or GTX465. (GTX480 gets an honorable mention.)

Hey now I got a GTX 480 as a back up for when my old stove kicks the bucket and the 550 ti is not worthy of the ti monicker or the asking price therefore = one of Nvidas worst ever.
