    NVIDIA GeForce 9800GX2 || GeForce GTX 550 Ti

    In theory 9800GX2 (GDDR3) is faster (much more memory bandwidth, textel and pixel rate), but it's using a older technology than GTX 550 Ti (GDDR5)....

    In the price..well you can see it by yourself...
    NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GX2 - $190
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti - $109.99

    Which one should I buy???

    Srsly dude there's a big bounce in the prices out there...I mean the GTX 550 Ti is something like $110 (which is OK), but the GTX 580 (used) is around $270...That shit sucks

    Dude, you're from Australia right?
    You should go for a minimum of 560 Ti.

    But if you can't spend that much go for 560.

    Well I'm not from AU, but I guess this might be decent:
