Hi everyone, I'm planning on picking up a new GPU this week. Right now I have a GTS 250, i5-2500k, and 8gbs Corsair Vengeance. I don't really know what my budget is, but heres the question. I'm pretty sure the 550 and 560 are great cards, but which would be the best? The 2g 550ti, a 560, 560ti, 550ti superclock? I just can't decide. Im a gamer and play mostly WoW, Starcraft, LoL, and TF2. Thanks for your help. :) 
P.S.... nVidia.

As the others said the 560Ti. As for the other cards you mentioned, the 560 non-Ti is an oc'ed GTX460, and the 550Ti is slower than a GTX460.
Also the Radeon 6950 trades blows with the 560Ti and tends to be little faster, so if you can't find a 560Ti get a 6950.
BTW i'd recommend getting Asus Direct CU II or MSI aftermarket versions of the 560Ti, the GF114 has a great overclock potential and can easily get close to the 570 when nicely oc'ed :)

Yea no one seems to worry about budget, just Buy this, idc how much its gonna cost you just buy this. Besides the fact there is a 100$ difference.....

I will say a 560 ti gets my vote if you can afford it. But the GTX 560 is a beast cart
