7770 is faster, though not by much. Price after rebate is more or less the same so I'd the 7770.

It's a tough call, I'd probably go with the 550ti. It's overclocked too, has a better warranty and better reviews. But the 7770 comes with a free game. It's a tossup.

thats really my problem right now lol, with 7770 does not really use much power compare to the 550ti.. in the heirarchy chart 7770 is up by at least one step to the 550ti.. so whats the verdict guys?

I'd go performance. $5 difference for more performance? Done.

Only way I'd even consider the 550TI is if you needed CUDA for an app or if your favorite game happens to play better on that card.
