New here don't need to welcome me....But I'm hitting my head on the wall just to figure out which card I should get
GTX550Ti or the 560?
One major factor is my PSU which is 400W has 6pin pcie connectors.
I'm thinking of using the card for light-med gaming and some graphics modeling(3D models,animating etc)
The price gap is quite big since I plan on getting the Asus brand--gd quality ;) 
About 100USD for the 550
And 211USD for the 560
I know its a lot so I was thinking of OCing the 550 so it could at least reach the level of the 560,all advise welcome!

Depending on the rest of your system and the quality of your PSU, it would be a tight fit for GTX550. It might work but without any headroom for OC. GTX560 is out of the question.

At least quality 450W for GTX550ti and 500W for GTX560. Maybe more, if you have a very power hungry CPU.
