you are working a 330 watt powersupply?
EDIT: The thing with 550Ti is it starts at ~90GBP, and that is a bit out of my range, unless I can pull out some more money, but until then I wouldn't look at the ~90's range...
Thanks for your help so far guys smile.gif

In that case aim for the GTS 450/5770/6770

i kno its a little out of your range. but the performance gain you will get an the possibility of a better crossfire or sli setup in the future would be worth the wait

Looking at this i would say 7750 is better than GTS450, and other thing is, i don't have enough money for a 550Ti, just yet, so I'm trying not to look at it as a keeper...

as stated here the 5770 an 6770 are also very decent cards http://www.hwcompare.com/5810/radeon-hd-5770-vs-radeon-hd-6770/

Also, as far as I'm aware the 5770/6770 are the exact same thing and the 6770 is a rebadge. So basically the only thing different is the sticker ..

So whichever can be had for cheaper is the way to go! wink.gif

i suggested a 7750 as its a newer card with great power efficiency and with the DirectX 11.1 support and i would say its the most powerful card with with out a external PCIe connector
and have a look at 7750 performing at par the GTX 55oTi and others BF3 @ stock clocks (Click to show)
547
Crysis 2 @ stock clocks (Click to show)
547
3D Mark 11 (Click to show)
547
you see its not very far from the GTX 550Ti and after all this the power consumption her you see
Power Consumption @ idle (Click to show)
700
Power Consumption under load (Click to show)
700
when overclocked performs close to 6850 7750 overclocked (Click to show)
552

these were a few things i would like you to take into consideration thumb.gif just that going for a card with better power efficiency is better investment then going with a card which no doubt performs better but pulls almost double the power from your wall and cranking up your electricity bill tongue.gif

Hope that helped thumb.gif

Looking at the AMD Website i saw that they say "minimum 4GB of system memory". Currently I have 2GB, do you think that will be a problem? :/

Also I am more of a GeForce person, what other cards would you suggest others than GTS450 or GTX550Ti? tongue.gif

I really can't make my mind up, right now I am thinking of abandoning the GTS450 and going for either HD6770 or a GTX550Ti.

Pricewise, the GTX550Ti is £88 where as the HD6770 is £82, but looking at this GPU comparison, it seems not only is HD6770 cheaper, but also better. What do you think?
