My current setup:

Core 2 Duo E7500 @ 2.93 Ghz
550W PSU
Nvidia GeForce 250 GTS

This will be used for moderate gaming looking to run Witcher 2, the Mass Effect trilogy (which I can run 1 & 2 on my current setup maxed out), and a few other games. The Witcher 2 will most likely be the most demanding unless the Enhanced Edition patch changes something.

I started looking at video cards, which I'm looking to buy this week and will use it in my current setup till I get the new mobo, cpu, and ram. I was looking at the Nvidia 550 TI, Nvidia 560, or Radeon 6770. I would go after the 560 TI, but that might require in me having to get another PSU which I bought this 550W about a year ago. I'm not looking to max games out and get blazing 60+ FPS on everything. Any recommendations?

How are the newer cards with hooking them up to larger screen TV's in the 50" range every so often if the set is 1920 x 1080 capable?

The 560 TI is more or less the same as the 560 on power while the performance is way better.
If you are looking at this card as a selection to go into your new build then I vote 560 Ti any day of the week.
1920 X 1080 is fine screen size dosent make a difference.

the 550 ti and the 6770 isn't much of an upgrade from a 250. Both being only about 10% faster. The 560 is a slightly bigger upgrade and is about 40% more powerful than the 550ti or the 6770.

I would suggest the 560 or 6870 for a decent upgrade.
