thank you

Really depends on the games you play and the resolution you play at. Also, what are your complete system specs?

In general however, the 660 is quite a bit faster.

more than 2x perf. significant upgrade

http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Zotac/GeForce_GTX_660/27.html

GTX 550 Ti - 44
GTX 660 - 100

whats your CPU. unless you have a core i5 or phenom II X4 at 4Ghz you might bottleneck the GPU. here is a EVGA GTX 660 for USD 198
