I was told that the Geforce 550 Ti was one of the best I could get (seeing as how I can't really afford the GTX 580). I plan to use it for editing and viewing 1080p videos, some high quality photos, and the occasional gaming. Mostly older titles though, like War Leaders: Clash of Nations and Order of War. Nothing new like battlefield 3.
Basically, am I getting the best for my money when I choose the 550 Ti?

Here is a site that will enable you to compare graphic cards. You can select different cards.
The GTX550ti adds extra wattage. (See the chart at bottom of the example I linked.
Look at the specs for each card on the website. Look at the length requirements. Power requirements.
Next is the new PSU (Power Supply) you must purchase for the card.
