150 for the two of them is actually a fair deal

The HD 6790 is faster than the GTX 550 Ti. I just upgraded from a GTS 250 512MB to the HD 6790 1GB and it was well worth it. I went from playing the BF3 beta on medium settings at 720p (35-50fps) to playing at all high settings at 1080p (35-45fps).

Both the HD 6790 and GTX 550 Ti were $130 at the store where I got mine.

It seems to me that your choices come down to:

GTX 460 1GB = HD 6850/70 1GB ($140-160)

or

GTX 550 Ti < HD 6790 ($110-130)

I would not go with anything lower then 1GB of Vram. No offense but 768mb 460s are not worth the money at all.

There should be a blanket rule enforced on this forum that any statement must be supported by evidence (not picking on you specifically Grimuri; just happened to catch your response when I was already agitated).

In ten different games, each card has five victories.

In the benchmarks you posted, the HD 6790 wins at high resolutions while the GTX 550 Ti sometimes wins at lower resolutions.

Considering it takes more processing power to play at higher resolutions I think the HD 6790 is the clear winner.

Also, the HD 6790 is ranked higher on the overclock.net graphics chart.

The HD 6790 is #36 while the GTX 550 Ti is #44.

That is what I was basing my claim on, including the fact that the HD 6790 is often compared to the GTX 460 768MB instead of the GTX 550 Ti.

I'll give you my 5770 for $90+shipping. Overclocks to 950/1250 stable on stock voltage, had it for ~2 years with no problems. A little dusty on the heatsink though. If you're going to do intensive games @1080p though, I probably would recommend a 6850 over it.
