Just when I thought it was safe to order my GTX460 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Someone threw a wrench into the mix! The GTX550! http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... The 550 doesn't have as many "cuda cores" as the 460. The 550 only has 1 six pin power connector as where the 460 has 2! I sort of had my heart set on the 460 but, like I said, someone HAD TO throw the 550 suggestion at me! I've heard that the 460 is actually better and more stable. I need to order this/something today! No pressure, right? Thoughts, opinions, facts??

Thanking everyone in advance!

Max

P.S. This is replacing the GT440 OC version. (Yuck!)

The GTX460 is indeed more faster than the GTX550Ti. I'd definitely go with a GTX 460 over a GTX 550 Ti.

And yes, the power consumption, heat dissipation is more in the case of a GTX 460.

Get the GTX 460. It's faster. It does use more watts but unless you game a lot more than average it won't amount to much on the power bill.

^+1 to gman and recon uk

the gtx 460 is performing like an hd 6850 and the gtx 550ti is performing little bit less then hd 6790 the hd 6790 is weaker then gtx 460 so the gtx 460 is faster in both of them.:) 

in my opinion you should go with hd 6850 which uses less power then gtx 460 and gives same performance even it just uses 1 6 pin pcie connector.:)

Just want to say "thank you" to everyone for alleviating my anxiety attack! Had this thing nailed down yesterday, or so I thought! Right until someone said, "Dude, 550 all the way!"

460 it is! Thanks again!

No no suunk, you've got it all wrong. :) 
I wasn't referring to you. I was referring to the guy that the OP was telling us about. The guy who said, "Dude, 550 all the way!"

NO! It definitely wasn't you!! It was some ..... Jerk, from YT! I should have known better by now than to listen to anything they have to say, as it's usually wrong! They just had me second guessing myself! I'm still "learning" so I thought it best to ask those who know!
