GTX 460.
It's generally more powerful, a better overclocker, and produces less heat, but consumes a bit more power.
Here's a review comparing the two.

The GTX460 will be faster. Power consumption will be a bit lower with the GTX550 Ti, and temperatures should be a wash.

The GTX460 (Particularly the 768MB model) is a much better investment with current pricing.

I agree with that, I had my 460's in sli for about 5 months & they stay cool even at full load (around 55 degrees) & 32 degrees when idle. Performs very fast and the scaling is excellent. Overclocked a few times & it remained stable for every test I gave it

The GTX460s are still the best buy, either the 1024 or the 768 are both better buys for their respective prices than the 550Ti is.

Sorry for bringing this up, but I don't feel like making a new topic for this.
So, do you think that the GTX 460 768MB would be better on 1440x900 monitor than the gtx 550 ti 1 GB? After reading reviews,comments and stuff, gtx 460 is definitely performing better.. but is the lack of memory really noticeable? I could also go with the gtx 460 1GB but it looks expensive.. the Palit one has a good price..

Hm, what do you exactly mean about the screen resolution?
Ive had good times with my monitor so far, it gives me good graphics and colors.
But I cant really run new games, so what did u mean?
