GTX 550 Ti or Radeon HD 6850?

So I know the 6850 is a better card. The price on both comes out to around the same. My problem is I do 3D rendering in Cinema 4D and work in Adobe programs like After Effects and Photoshop. I also do some gaming (e.g., Portal 2, Minecraft). I don't do anything in Premier Pro, so I wouldn't benefit from CUDA right? So would it make more sense to get the 6850 (if so which one)?

Btw this is the 550 I was looking at: EVGA GTX 550 Ti, and here are the 6850s: Gigabyte Radeon HD 6850 and PowerColor Radeon HD 6850

Get the 6850, if you want more performance, get the GTX560, 560Ti, HD 6870, or HD 6950.

Literary not faster than 6850, but you said you like CUDA so, buy the one like the above post.

I was asking if I would benefit from CUDA, not that I like it, since I don't use Premier Pro...

It is what you want and what you can afford. Everybody has there likes and dislikes. On the low end cards CUDA doesn't make much difference. Also I have two of the GTX 550 Ti's in Sli and just one GTX 560 ti will do a better job as well as a HD 6950 will. The HD 6850 will be better than the GTX 550 ti. Here is link to a Hierarchy of GPU's.
