Thanks

  1. The 560 is much better than the 550ti. It is on par with a Radeon 6870 or GTX 460.
  2. The GTX 560 is definitely faster than the GTX 550 Ti. I'd say you save up and buy that.
    What's the native resolution of your monitor?
  3. Don't get the 550ti it doesn't have enough grunt. I have two of them and not to impressed with them. The 6870 is way better than than 550's. The 560 ti is going for $199.99

    Out of the cards shown the 560 ti is better. I will link you two some things to help you on your quest. There is one more question what is your PSU brand and wattage? If it isn't to low non of these cards will work

    Sorry I did not know. I would save up and get the 560. What type of gaming or what are you needing the upgrade of the card for?
  7. I need it for boosting my fps in games and things maybe a little bit of graphic design and media and I am unsure of the monitors resolution but the model of it is the Acer P223w 22" and I am unsure of the other monitors Model but I am sure it is and Acer AL series 15"
  8. New egg is still a good price guide though thanks for the links

    Your welcome. If you need a card now the 550 will be a much more improvement than the GT430. But I wouldn't count on high settings is most of todays gamed. I use my two cards for sttategy type games.

    In Shogun 2 I get anywhere from 60 to 90 fps with everything set to ultra. Rise of Nations I get 85fps all setting set on high. The first shooter games not good. I would be luckey to get 25 fps on low.

    Again the 550 is a lot better then you have now. Here is the hierarchy of GPU's list. They haven't updated it with the new AMD 7xxx series or the nVidia 6xx series yet. It is a tool. I do wish you good luck on what you want to do.
