GTX 550 Ti

Radeon 7750

AND NO I can't spare any more money for a better GPU like a radeon 6850, I'm on a REALLY tight budget...it's one or the other. ;p Thank you.

The most beneficial thing of the 7750 is no 6pin power connector required.

If you want the 550ti, you can do better than that price. The one you're looking at is stock clock. There are factory overclocked ones at around the same price.

For example: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

Although, Metal orient is correct, the 6790 is indeed superior, even against an oc'd 550ti. Video cards are not a place to cut corners if you want to game.

You might as well go with the 6850 for the cost of the 550 Ti you're looking at. The 6850 is better than both for around the same price, and the 6850 beats out the 550 Ti by a large margin.

I know this is really late but this is for anyone who comes across this. I Had the radeon 7750 in my system and it was good played all my games better then my previous Geforce GT520....expect GTA IV and Crysis 2 were very laggy and unplayable on max settings. I just purchased the GTX 550 Ti for 109.00 with 20.00 mail in rebate so for 89.00 not a bad price (radeon was 149.00 at best buy). I play every game out now at max settings with frame rates between 25-60 very playable imo. Some examples would be :

GTX 550Ti / Radeon 7750

Skyrim - min 27fps avg 44-60fps / Min 16-20 Fps Avg 27 Fps

Guild Wars 2 - min 20fps avg 33-60fps / Min 16-17 FPS Avg 24-27 Fps

Star Wars The Old Republic - min of 30 fps Avg 60 Fps / Min 20 fps Avg 30-40 Fps

Crysis 2 - Min 25 fps Avg 40Fps / Unplayable on Ultra Settings

Borderlands 2 - Min 24 Fps Avg 40-50fps / Min 16-20Fps Avg 30 Fps

GTA IV - min 16-17 fps Avg 30fps / Unplayable on Max Settings

System Specs
Processor Intel Core 2 Quad Q9950 2.83GHz
8 GB DDR2 PC6400 800mhz Ram (I know old school and prob Bottle-necking me)
750GB 7200rpm Harddrive
460W Power supply
Creative X-Fi Gamer Edition Sound Card
PYN GTX 550 Ti 1GB

Do I want a new System yes! But I couldn't pass up this deal got the Tower, 22" HDMI Monitor, Saitek Cyborg Keyboard, MX518 Gaming Mouse all for 200.00! So for the total of 289.00 Ive got a system that plays everything at max settings smooth enough for my tastes.

strange. I use an Asus Radeon 7750 and my average fps for Skyrim is about 45. GTA 4 and Crysis are both playable on ultra settings. For Crysis I get around 17 fps on ultra settings.

Perhaps to some degree due to the fact I have a different system. Q9950? or Q9550?
