    nice card, but i would recommand 2gb ram on the gfx, if u game in 1080p or else u gonna use the 1gb too quickly...

    and yes ino that the 2gb version is like 5 bucks more and u get another cooler on the msi card but why not, double up the memory? just me 2cents...

    MSI N650-2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 650 2GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card and u also get Free $75 value in-game coupon w/ purchase, limited offer :rolleyes:

    I honestly would have gone with at least a 650 Ti/Boost if you needed more performance, but the base 650 should be an exact replacement for your 550 Ti.
