What card is better for my use

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have not look very hard into this yet. but I'm looking at upgrading my gts 250 to a evga gtx 550 2gb ti or 560 or a gt 640. I will using these cards for litght gaming but I will also be using them for photoshop editing and dreamweaver use. Im looking at a 175 upper limit but much perfer to stay under 150. Unless the perform difference will be greatly noticed.

for 150 you can definitely get even a previous gen card with much more bang for your buck. Even something like a gtx 470 or a 5870.

In the market there's a 560 non TI for $120, pretty good deal if you ask me. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127593
Is also a pretty good deal, $150 after rebates. A 560ti, 560, or 6950 is what I'd look into @ that price range.
