Gigabyte has delivered a card that performs very well for its price. Based on the NVIDIA GTX 550 Ti, this card has some incredible features. Not the least of which is its performance when paired with a second 550 Ti in SLI Mode. SLI will really make this card shine. If you are a gamer on a budget, and you can't see yourself affording one of the top cards, then this would be the way to go. It competes very well against the other cards in its price point, and with the ability to add a second card down the road, that's a great value. This card puts the “Green Team” back in the game for the mid-range card market. The scores speak for themselves and show the GTX 550 Ti as a very viable contender for the 1680X1050 resolution gamer. For the $150.00 price range the new Gigabyte GTX 550 Ti shows big promise for the entry level gaming card as it plays well and is highly affordable.
