More about which graphics card
  1. Generally buying a second card for SLI is the cheapest option to get more performance, but it's not always the best.

    Plus, it's entirely possible your system doesn't support SLI. Please list your PC specs (CPU, motherboard model, power supply, RAM). Your budget is important as well.

    A 560 Ti is a really big step up. A regular 560 would be a nice improvement. Or go with AMD and get a 6870 which is a very good value.
  2. GA-Z68X-UD3P-B3 motherboard
    Intel Core i5 2500k GHz Processor
    Corsair Vengeance 8gb DDR3 memory
    EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti video card
    500gb hard drive
    dvd cd writer lg
    inwin dragon slayer case
    corsair builder series cx 600 psu

  4. Well SLI probably won't be a problem for you. But i still think the GTX 560 ti is better decision. As a GTX 550 Ti, is well not good for those looking to have a long term relationship with their graphics card
  5. thanks for that guys i think thats the way ill go then...

    get one radeon 7850 it runs circles around the 560 and it costs
    the same.


    MSRP of $250, will probably be sold at $260-280... that does not equal the $185 for a 560. Unless you mean the 560 Ti, which is only $220-240.

    Anyway, I do agree the 7850 is an awesome card. Except that they aren't actually released yet.
