Hey guys, i am trying to figure out which graphics card to go for.
I am looking at the nvidia550ti
or the 560SE which is suprisingly cheaper that the 550

Any suggestions helpful, I have a gtx 430 right now. I also have a 120-130$ limit!
Thanks guys! :)

GTX 560 SE is more powerful than GTX 550 Ti :) . I'd still recommend HD 7770 for that price range unless you want an nvidia card.

The 560 SE is a slightly-crippled 560 (288 cores vs 336, compared to the 192 for a 550 Ti). It runs at a somewhat lower clock than the 550 Ti. The 560 SE is definitely the more powerful card, and if it's cheaper, there's no question that it's the better buy. You should be able to get some OC headroom out of it too, since it's running at a relatively tame 776 MHz.

The thing I don't know is how the 560 SE compares to, say, a 6850. I'd imagine that it's similar performance, but I haven't found an actual comparison.
