The 550 ti specs are: here

Comparison of current video cards and how they compare is here

I bought one of each because the BB online system didn't have enough information to intelligently compare the two cards. Surprisingly, based upon appearances the 550 ti appears to be a much heavier duty card but the performance specs of the 560 blow it out of the water so I will be keeping the 560 and returning the 550 ti.

I am going to a store tomorrow to return my DOA 560, and I notice they have a 560 ti at the same store for $200. I will offer them $150 for this card and see if they bite. That's all it's worth in my opinion for an aged 560 ti. I bought the DOA 560 for $125, but it is barely worth that.

If it had *worked* would you have been OK with it? The specs show it to be a decent mid-range card and the reviews I have seen say the same. Certainly most people who are hard-core gamers would prefer the TI, but for almost any other user and "regular gamer" this card should be good.

Well, I did end up exchanging it for another. That ti version isn't worth even their clearance price. Yes, it is a good gaming card, and worth the price. It's an older card, but current chip. The other reason is that I wanted to be able to return it locally, and that part paid off because I had to with the first one. Maybe this one also, because it was an open box.

I'm sort of confused by how you say it isn't worth the price but also is worth the price. I currently have a GTX 260 and an E8400 that I had bought used for cheap to replace my old E5200. Don't want to go replacing my whole motherboard, but thought a new cheap video card might give a little improvement. Would the 560 be worth the price for whatever upgrade it would give over a 260? My closest store claims limited inventory, so I might try to see what happens if I order it for pickup.
