Gaming at 1360x768 Which Card?

I currently have:
A slightly OC'd 2500k on an Asus Z68 mobo + 16 GB Ram
A Samsung 830 128 GB SSD + Caviar Black storage drive
A PC Power and Cooling 500 Watt PSU

And for a video card I am using
A PNY 240GT 512MB GDDR5
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


I am thinking of upgrading with a budget of $200 but I was thinking I would be better off to get a 7750 or a 550 ti for $100 until the 600 series budget cards come out and cheapen up next year.

I game at 1360x768 so I understand that I don't need a 680 but there is performance to be gained for not a lot of investment over the $40 I spent on the 240.

I was going to get the 550 ti until I found out how poorly it performs for the price. I plan on running the 240 with my TV so I was thinking a nVidia card would be better to run at the same time but the integrated seemed to work with my monitor and tv good but the audio wouldn't with every program (looking at you VLC player).

Anyways I'd like to be able to crank up SC2 JC2 and whatever other games I get soon. Lemme know whatca think.

1366x768 is not a common resolution used to benchmark games. However, the following review (link below) has benchmarks for 1024x768 and 1280x1024. Based on the total number of pixels for each resolution, 1366x768 lands halfway between 1204x768 and 1280x1024. Therefore, the quick and dirty way to estimate the frame rates for resolution is to add the frame rates of the other two resolutions and divide by 2. Also, the test rig uses an Intel i7-920 @ 3.8GHz.

Personally I would pick the following Radeon for HD 6850 $135 after rebate, but it also has a coupon code to bring down the price to $120. However, that code ends tonight at midnight Pacific Time. It performs very close to the Radeon HD 7770, but costs less.

The HIS Radeon HD 7770 is the least expensive HD 7770 for $140 no rebate to deal with.

On the nVidia side, there's the GTX 560 for $160 that should give similar performance as the Radeon HD 7770. Not to be confused with the more expensive GTX 560 Ti.

The GTX 550 Ti actually performance very well for it's price. The following ASUS ENGTX550 TI is $110 after rebate which makes it equal in price to the Radeon HD 7750.

The benchmarks shows that the GTX 550 Ti only looses to the Radeon HD 7750 in two games; Crysis 2 and Skyrim. However the difference in Crysis 2 between those two cards are pretty wide. The GTX 550 Ti can beat the more expensive and more powerful Radeon HD 7770 in StarCraft 2.

A 560Ti should max out about any game there is at that resolution. I game at 1600 X 900, and have a 448core 560Ti. I can run BF3 on ultra, so the regular Ti should have no problem at 1360X768
