Default Is this video card a good deal?

I am looking to buy a new video card but dont really want to spend a fortune. I came across this one and was hoping to get some opinions.

Buy the EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti 1GB GDDR5 PCIe 2.0 at TigerDirect.ca

Thanks in advance! xD

What games do you plan to play?

Theres a world of a difference between the 550ti and the 560ti. You can wait for the new generation of video cards from nvidia to launch which would then plumet the prices of the 500 series which then u can pick up a 560ti or something similar. ATI are usually a bit cheaper.

I personally would get a previous generation gtx460. Which i currently have and works great =D biased? maybe
