I need a new video card and I can't decide between these two. I need GPU for playing games in high resolutions (1080p, maybe higher) with highest settings.
My current specs are:
Sapphire Radeon HD 5670
MSI 760GM P23 motherboard
Samsung 2gb HDD
and Corsair 500W PSU.
I live in Serbia and the choice of GPUs is very limited and the price of computer hardware is really high (example AMD FX-4100 is approximately 180$).
The two GPUs I consider to buy are PowerColor Radeon HD 6790 and Leadtek GTX 550 Ti they are both similarly priced at aroun 160 dollars (which is in Serbia very cheap for these models which prices may go up to even 220 dollars). I have also considered ordering something from EU, UK or even US but the price with shipping would be almost the same unless I have it mailed by someone.
Should I wait for new Nvidia cards to come out because the prices of older models will drop or should I buy one of these GPUs? There are couple of more options. EVGA superclocked GTX 550 Ti(200$) and PowerColor HD 6850(220$). Maybe even some older models in crossfire with mobo and PSU upgrade but that would take much more time for me to obtain enough money.
