your cpu and psu can handle the hd 7850 it doesnt require that much power from psu.:) 

just make sure that you have 1x6pin pcie connector.:)

at 1920p hd 6850 is a very good choice. It has higher pixel rate which will support at higher resolutions :D

here are the benchmarks between hd 6850 and 6870. If u'll play bf3 , crysis 2 etc i'd recommend a hd 6870 it can run most games easily but a hd 6850 isn't so bad either. you'll get enough frame rates to play smoothly. In crysis warhead only, hd 6850 gives a 25 fps, in others it is much better. :D

wtf the gtx 550ti oc is better then hd 6850 dont tell him wrong things the gtx 550ti stock one is just a bit better then hd 6770 which is way less in performance then hd 6850 and an factory oced gtx 550ti is about the hd 6790 in performance which is also less in performance then hd 6850 first think what you are saying and then tell.

Simply put, don't hamstring yourself for future gaming, spend an extra 20 bucks, stop with the takeaway latte's for a week or three and enjoy your rig for years, rather than months.

It's compatable with your 550W PSU no matter the brand as the new technology makes it rather efficient.

It will game up to HD, but it's sure as hell not going to be bottlenecked by your Q6600!

So TL:D R don't be a stinge, spend a wee bit extra, and in that price bracket the performance (read: gaming life) by far beats the price difference!

even it is less in performance then hd 6850 the gtx 550ti oc cant compete with hd 6850 if u overclock it to higher level then yes it can reach hd 6850 level but if u overclock hd 6850 then it will do better then hd 6870.:)

answer of op question is that you can get hd 7750 or hd 6770 or gts 450 on that price.:) 

hd 7750 doesnt require any 6 pin pcie connector and more power good for low end psu.:) 

hd 6770 its littlebit better then hd 7750 in performance just the fact isthat u will need an 6 pin pcie connector.:) 

gts 450 needs pcie connector doesnt gives that much performance but you can get it in $90 even old tech.:)
