    Default GPU Decisions

    Hi guys, i need help in a decision that I've been racking my brain over.

    Im upgrading my pc and so far I have:

    Core i3 2100
    8gb Kingston DDR3
    Gigabyte H61M-S2P motherboard

    So trying to decide between the nvidia 550ti, GTX560 or Radeon 6850
    I like the 550ti because its more in my price range but wondering if the other cards are worth the extra R500 odd with regards to my overall pc specs.

    PSU I still need to but not too worried about that at the moment.

    Any advice is much appreciated! Thanks

    I'd go for the 6850 if price is a concern. The GTX 560 is faster so keep that in mind.

    Wootware are having a clearance sale on the 6870 for only R1599.

    You won't want anything less than a 500w PSU for any of these cards.

    Sucked up as much as I can, opting for the 560GTX

    Thanks for the help/comments!
