+1 to gamerkila to the hd 7770 at least and it isn´t so far in price too.

Hmm.... considering 650's greater core clock and memory clock and 550 ti's 192bit bus......
Can't say much :D 

i think 550ti...........
BUT as classzero said not much difference in performance so buy cheaper one

The GTX 650 is as fast as the GTX 550 Ti but it uses less power.
BUT both of these cards are no match for a HD 7770 which is quite a bit better than both.

There are some tests that show the 6850 coming out on top while other tests show the 7770. If the 6850 is cheaper, I'd say get that, but if there's not much difference or any at all in price get the 7770 as it uses less power.

IF u want to OC go for 7770 want to play at higher res. go for 6850
I'd say not much difference so get 7770 as it uses less powr and is newer tech

Im currently using the 550ti and is getting a solid 55fps in most games with an overclock on it. im unsure about the 650, all i know about it is that it looks pretty cute.

the two are not horrible. if the two are bad then by your definition cards like 7750 are not good for games either. the two looks bad because they don't compete on the same level with 7770 performance wise. people with low resolution should be fine with cards like 650, 550Ti and 7750

for 1080p get hd7770 or hd6850 , for 1680*1050 or lower get hd7750 or gtx650 but keep in mind neither will let u game at max settings and aa enabled. you will have to drop details to get smooth frame rates in demanding games

Any self respecting budget gamer isn't going to get a crappy gtx 650 as it is already near its max. Plus there is plenty of other options for the same price and often less. I would go with respectable cards like the 7770 or 6850 and if you are stuck in the nvidia rut then look at second hand GTX460/560 era cards.

i would go for the 7770. however if ur in nvidia territory, then id say 550 ti.
