  1. GTX560 is way better. But your CPU will bottleneck it and the PSU sounds insufficient.
  2. GTX 560 demands 450W n i have a 500W...how much do i want more...n ya i m nt going for SLI.....
  3. Yea the 560 is better. performance and GPU life

    That PSU will quite easily run a GTX560 and the CPU is more likely to be an issue if the OP wanted to SLi.
  5. Well this is going to be hard to understand but the way the PSU idea works is.... You want enough to power your system and more... SO your PSU isnt on full load 24/7

    Exactly. PSU is the last component you'd want to cheap out on. Well, you didn't technically "cheap out" with a Corsair, but you get the point.

    560 almost twice the performance of 550.. so 560 is a lot better card than 550, especially your screen-res is 1080p, yeah 560 is the go. maybe you want to upgrade that CPU too, just to maximizing the 560.
