    First off, should I? I could always sell this one on anyways and make back 80% of what I paid.

    And then secondly, what is the "hip" new card all the youngsters are using these days?

    That looks aright to me, if rather a little expensive.


    current specs are Nvidia 55ti amp.
    8GB Ram
    Intel i5 2500k processor.
    etc etc.


    looking forward to hearing everyone's opinions.

    What power supply is your PC using? Your specs are more than definitely fine but you want to be sure your power supply is able to deliver constant stable power to the GPU.

    650 watt. I think it's the Corsair builder series.

    That's perfect to run a single 560ti/570 or 580.

    If you plan to SLI, you will need to upgrade your PSU.

    Ooh, thats another thing. Would it be a better spendature of money to buy another 550 and just sli them instead of upgrading to the 580?
