Which company has the best warranty? Is EVGA still the best? Galaxy's warranty sucks...

What is the AMD equivalent of the 560 Ti?

Looking at a few comparisons the 560 would more than double what my 450 can do for slightly more than the other one I was looking at.

Anyone know what my Galaxy GTS 450 GC is worth?

they 6950 and 560 Ti seems very similar in performance

6950 is around 240 US dollars

560 Ti is around 290 US dollars

That's what I'm leaning towards. Hopefully I can get enough out of my laptop to get that, and then sell my 450 and upgrade the RAM, too.

The 550 ti is a trap pretty much. Its overpriced for the cost and isnt even that great anyway compared to your GTS 450. In all honesty, if you want to stay in the $140-180 range then go with a 6850 or 6870. Those are defiantly worth it and will be a pretty good upgrade imo. Or you could just keep saving up and get something better. thumb.gif
