At the $150 mark I'd look into the evga superclocked gtx 460, it'll outperform that 550 ti

Even with both at stock speeds, the 460 is better

sapphire, xfx, gigabyte, msi cards are good. and 6850 can kick 550ti's ass.
nothing wrong with amd, it would work with the 6850. but higher cards might get choked.

To be honest i picked it because to me it looks cool :D  and because of the fans/ratings.

And i dont plan on upgrading, im doing this for a school project for my IT class and because i want a decent Gaming Pc :)

so when your instructor finds out you spent more on the case than on the motherboard . . . . .

Really, if you're stuck on nVidia, you might as well bump up to this card - the extra money will be well spent.

or if AMD is okay, and you can't go over budget, get an HD 6850 for $140. Much better than the 550ti

I planed on overclocking so i did not know how much more the super clocked could go from overclocking :??: 

I have nothing against AMD, they are the same in my eyes :D

Superclocked is just a pre overclock lol. Much safer letting the factory do it.
