And they are right. The 550's are not that fast even with both in SLI the single 560 ti still beats them. They are only good for strategy games. The BF3 type games they can't handle it, med to low setting's all the time.

If you are going to invest get the 560 ti's. If I had known about Tom's hardwear before I put this rig together I would have done something different like buy the 560 ti's. My 550 ti's are OC'd but not superclocked. They are in the middle. Here are some info on the cards.

thing is if i buy it im getting the evga superclocked one or the FTW if i found it here,and the cpu if my 450gts is only 2nd to the super clocked 550gtx ti's thats why im pretty hesitant about the 560ti which also i would get super clocked from evga and ftw if possible lol

Well bottom line is what you think is best and you know what your needs are. I would suggest that you get other opinions one the GPU. That way your reserch will be complete before you pull the triger. I agree with you on the superclocked.

Did you know on some programs you can OC your GPU's like MSI Afterburner also you can monitor your temps and set your fan speeds on your GPU. It is a good tool to have and it is free. We I want to wish you the best and I hope eveything works out for you.
