STOP SPREADING WRONG INFORMATION,
gtx550ti is better than gts250,
gts450 is better than gts250 by a small margin

I dont only game, like I said before I also FOLD, I'd buy a 580 to fold if I had the money and this year I am going to start a graphic destining course in school.

So no 550 or 450, I guess the 560 or 470 are the best upgrades right?

so hd6870 is the best option.

OP, The best choice IMO for you is a GTX460 768MB, they are cheap and more powerful than a GTS550TI.

Please, don't spread nonsense.

GTS550 has 192bit bus vs GTS450 128bit so the memory bandwidth improved a lot.

GTX560 has 384SP vs GTX460 336SP.

He says that he folds, so it must be a NVIDIA card.

Yea, was basing off a chart with the 450 at stock clocks and the 250 at 750Mhz core. My mistake.
