I'm pretty sure that the steam statistics count both the GTX 560 and the GTX 560 Ti as being the same card, so those statistics are a bit deceiving. nVidia also has the advantage of having 1 card in a performance bracket where AMD has 2 (6850/6870 vs GTX 560), so AMD will naturally be pulling lower percentages per card. Not that this really means anything, but I thought it was worth mentioning.
Anyway, I'd suggest the 6790. It tends to beat the 550 Ti.
