Radeaon 6870 vs GTX 550 ti

as the thread title says which is better the Radeon 6870 or the GTX 550ti? i saw benchmarks that favored the 6870 but i just want to be sure before i spend the extra $40-50

here is the build the card will be running with

CPU Intel Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz Quad-Core Processor
CPU Cooler Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing
MotherboardASRock P67 Extreme4 Gen3 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard
Memory Patriot G Series Sector 5 Edition 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1333 Memory
PSU HEC 650W ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply

which one should i go with? if the Radeon will give me much better performance then il go with that but otherwise il save the $50

Thanks in advance!

  1. 6870 hands down unless your playing on an old crt monitor then the 550ti will work great. You should post your resolution.
  2. 6870 will make u smile!

    This ones only 150 after rebate.

    So worth it.
  3. Yes, the 6870 is easily worth the extra money. It's a solid two tiers above the 550 Ti.

    Consider getting the Hyper Plus. I have the EVO, but I've heard loads of people say the Plus is nearly as good and for less money.

    If I were you, I'd stick with the Antec, Corsair, and Seasonic brands for a PSU.
