I am looking for a video card that will go well with my build, and i have narrowed it down to 2 cards the one is the Nvidia 560 ti EVGA Superclocked. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Link for everybody. The next is the Nvidia 550 ti EVGA. http://www.microcenter.com/product/369120/02G-P3-1559-K... Link. They both are GDDR5, but the 550 ti has 2 gigs and better a higher core, shader, and memory speeds. Thanks for the suggestions and help!

Any other recommendations possibly from Nvidia, I really don't want to spend over $160. I'm on a college student budget, thanks. lchrisk a b U Graphics card October 27, 2012 2:24:07 AM It's understandable that you are a college student and want to get the best bang for your buck, but you won't be truly happy unless you wait for a slightly better graphics card. For 40$ more, you could get the 7850 / 7870, which I guarantee, will make you happy. 560 isn't really that good, and the 550 won't be maxing out any of the newer titles without lag issues. Also very power consuming. -Save up just a little more. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources: ForumWhich of these budget prebuilts should I buy ?
