    I was just wondering which one is better? I notice that the gtx 550ti has 192bit and the 7770 has 128bit. The 7770 clock speed is faster than 550ti. So, which one is better?

    tests and reviews says HD 7770 is better, even in heavy AA and high resolution that stresses the memory bandwidth and ROPs. Both cards uses different architecture and memory optimizations so direct comparison isn't necessarily accurate. The HD 7750 is more on par with the GTX 550 Ti.

    GTX 560 SE is more of a direct competitor for the class.

    I heard the news yesterday that a GTX 560 SE is going to be released by nVidia to compete against AMD's HD 7700 series. I hope there will be reviews here at Techpowerup. In short the GTX 560 SE is similar to the GTX 460 SE where 2 SMs are disabled,which means it got 288 SP and 48 TMU.

    GTX 560 SE also has lower memory bandwidth and ROP count than GTX 460 SE (460 SE has 32 ROPs and 256bit memory interface while 560 SE has 24 ROP and 192bit memory, just like the GTX 550 Ti), default clocks not compensatin to the low ROP and memory bandwidth but has advantage in TMU, meh both can be clocked higher anyway

    Get the 7770 for the power and heat savings. After one year of use, you will save $ on electricity bills, and you will reduce the heat generation within the PC helping to keep temperatures of all equipment cooler.

    Unless you are a programmer using CUDA and need these features. If you are a regular PC user or gamer, get the 7770. (Today). Perhaps nV's next generation will be a better option, but we are a few months off before that option is on the market

    I'd be interested in hearing how it performs for you. I was looking at both the 550 and 7770 as well but ended up with a 560. So I'd definitely like to hear your thoughts once you get some gaming in.
