Well, according to the main title you asked for a 560, thought the 550 was a typ'o. Probably the 465 is faster at gaming, but it also can be a very unstable card, i've had some bad experience with that card. A 460 would be better if a 560 is out of your budget range.

The GTX 460 is a good card and selling at a discount now because the model is being discontinued. You might also consider the GTX 560 (without the Ti) which is a little bit slower than the GTX 560 Ti but lower in cost - I think it is a good value buy - although the GTX 460 is a value buy too.

Here is a review of the GTX 560 - the benchmarks include comparisons with the 460 and 560 Ti. Read the summary on the last page, too.

And here is a good choice for the GTX 560:

ASUS ENGTX560 DC/2DI/1GD5 GeForce GTX 560 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card - $155 after rebate and a $10 promo code that ends 8/31

The 465 was a junk card from the start like the 5830. The 460 on paper and in real life performance is a great card and got one my self but they are not made very well. They got cheap when it came to cooling and most tend to degrade over a few months to a year before kicking the bucket. I suggest that you stick with a more reliable card for the long haul because most have issues with the power vrm overheating and some have issues with the vram not being cooled either. If you got deep pockets or a steady income then go ahead and get one but you will have to work at it early on to keep it from degrading over time.

And, i thought of buying a GTX 590 for $900 (with shipping). And, this is my maximum budget.

At the same time, i can buy 2x GTX 570 Ti (SLI) for $665 (with shipping). So i can save for other components of the build.

So.... which should i buy???

Pleeez help ah?

Thanks........ ; )

Trail, How did you get from looking at a GTX 550 Ti that can be purchased for $130 to looking at a GTX 590 for $900?

Are you just putting us on and wasting everyone's time and the goodwill of people trying to help others with sincere needs?
