Depends on OP's local prices smile.gif As I said, 550's are a steal here compared to the totally overpriced 460 smile.gif That's in Denmark.

Hmm I see. If I decide to overclock the 550 Ti (thats already OC, but OC it more) and do the same with the 460, which will be better?

Also take note that the stock case is a Mid tower case. And I got the PSU for 70~ (90 but with rebates) plus the 2 fans.

If you oc it up to 1ghz it's close to the 460, but the 460 is also a great overclocker...so that has even more headroom. And assuming your US or CA I can't stress enough how much of a steal that MSI card is, especially after the rebate.

I loved my 550ti regardless of what everyone said about it- only because I was running it on 1600x900. At this res it can handle almost anything on ultra. But when I upgraded to my 1080p LED monitor it killed the performance, so I upgraded to the GTX 480 biggrin.gif

Goodluck thumb.gif
