Should I get

or

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... GTX 550 Ti(2GB)

I have enough power supply, and everything it supports both GPUs.

My monitor is http://usa.asus.com/Display/LCD_Monitors/VE228H/ (ASUS VE228H)

Not a hardcore gamer, just image editing, maybe a little starcraft on high settings(hopefully) if not I'm fine with it.

Not overclocking, No SLI. 1920x1080 Resolution

I know but the thing is, do I really need it?
What's the difference that I will notice?

Well the 560 is gonna handle your 1080p resolution better, and mean way better than a 550. a 550 can handle 1680X1050 or below superior the 560 is much better. if you can spend the extra 30$ get the ti version if you wanna last longer and not have to get a newer card

the gtx 560 will handle most newer games better then the gtx 550ti an hd gtx 460 is 5-10% more better then a gtx 550ti and the gtx 560 is more better then the gtx 460 so the gtx 560 is gonna win there between that two. u can also get one hd 6870 instead of that two its also a good card one more thing that the gtx 560 ti has 336 shader cores and the gtx 550ti has only 192 so why to waste money on that just buy an gtx 560 or hd 6870.:)
