The 560 is the most powerful out of the 4.

To be honest the only gpu that 350w psu of yours would support is hd7750 and possibly a hd7770 if its a quality 350w psu.

gtx 550 ti, gtx 560 and hd6870 are out of question unless you upgrade the psu.

You're going to need a new power supply.

You cant run any of the cards without it.

Try this?

The 6850 should even out-do the 550Ti.

I agree as well with this post. Unless you upgrade your PSU to a better and higher wattage/amps, you will only be limited to the HD 7750, the HD 7770 is pushing it a bit if you have a generic PSU that usually ships with computers such as HP, DELL and such.

Actually, Dell's PSUs are manufactured by Delta, which is up there with Seasonic in terms of quality with their power supplies. So if you have a Dell, a GTX 560 isn't completely out of line, but barring that, you need a new PSU to power a 550 Ti/560/6850/etc.

The HD 6850 will be the better card. It performs better than the GTX 550 Ti, I persoanlly believe the GTX 550 Ti should be $80.

My vote goes out for the 6850. Both of the suggestions I suggested above should work fine.
