    i am still choosing over these cards:

    1. Palit GTS 450 Sonic Platinum

    2. EVGA GTX 460

    3.Palit GTX 550-Ti

    4. Palit GTX 650-Ti

    5. ASUS HD 7770

    then i will take the seasonic supply.

    what do you think will be the best choice out of these cards?
  4. Instead of the 650 Ti, try getting the 7850 if possible. 650 Ti is the best performing out of your list, but it's not priced too generously.
  5. Here's a review for the Seasonic

    and here's a forum for the corsair.

    both of them are good.
