550ti good enough?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm loving the price point of these on newegg....after rebates the cheapest are around 110$, and they are DX11.

And I've seen several vids of it running crysis dx9, and a few other games at good resolutions and good fps. This is for a rig for my gf, who doesn't game, but would like to play a few games, but mostly photoshops and watching dvd's....and for the 430 PSU i'm gonna get, i'm thinking this would be a good bang for the buck card.

Anybody else use this model card?

The 550ti performs about on par with a 5770. you can find those much cheaper, especially if you grab one from the OCN marketplace

edit: since this IS the nvidia forum I suppose it is the best option from that side in that price range

My CX430 is powering a used GTX 460 right now I got from geeks.com. She wouldn't mind a refurbed card would she, if it works?

They are out of GTX 460/465's right now but here's a 5770 for 90 bucks, 16 bucks more for a 1-year warranty.

Here's one for 85...

I was going to suggest a used 460 but i figured it was too much [performance wise]. bought one @ 100 for my gf's budget gaming build, it is a monster at that price point.

Looks like I'll plan on a 460(around 100$ or less) or a tossup between a 550ti/5570. Just order a dvd burner/antec 430...for 47$ after rebates! So far i've done good on the cost of this rig..
