What a deal! because the GTX 460 768 for less isn't better.

What the hell? I'm seriously going mental now. This is one of, if not THE, worst card to come out in the year. Who in their right mind would choose this over a GTX 460 768MB?

But 550 is a larger number than 460... and the 460 doesn't have a 'Ti' at the end...

And it's 768MB and not 1GB.. and It's not EVGA FPB/SC.. AND NO LIFETIME- no wait, only 2 years now.

It really isn't good even for that. This card uses more power, makes more heat and costs more or the same as the 768MB 460. Some DirectX 9 games I got use 60%-90% of my GPU and about 720MB VRAM (at 1440x900) and I'm running a weak CPU. 768MB of VRAM will get you by maxing out DX9 games, 1GB on a slower card is pointless, the lack of shaders will hit the performance of that card long before the 1GB of VRAM comes anywhere near to being utilized, unless someone runs their games at highest resolution and lowest settings, which is the only case where the 550 will win over the 460 with 768MB RAM. As for DX11, it is pretty much a gimmick on the 550.

EDIT: Here's an example: Necrovision (DirectX 9 game) fully maxed out with 8XAA (ran on my sig rig).
