Is a GTX 550 Ti a worthy upgrade from a Radeon HD 5750? If not what would be a good mid range upgrade card?

Current Specs:
i5-750 CPU
4GB ram
HD 5750
600w psu (Have to check later as I'm posting from my phone)

Thanks!

Can't you find a 460 instead? Might be cheaper.

E: it performs better.

I just saw it as a Cyber Monday deal for $89. Would it still be better to get a 460 as far as performance goes? Or would the 550 be better at $89?

Plus the GTX 460 is $99 and is by Zotac.

GTX 460 is quite a bit faster. I would take it over 550 ti anyday. Still a decent card.

Assuming you are talking about the 1GB model.

Yea, I guess I should have mentioned that. The 550 Ti is the 2GB model.

What resolution do you run at, and how many monitors do you have?

I'll admit I'm not with the tech-market stuff these days, but I'm not sure whether an extra 1GB will make a difference. How much can you find a 460 1GB for compared to a 550 2GB?

If you can find a 460 it's better and cheaper than the 550. But for not much more than either, you could get a 2GB GTX 560. With the rest of your rig, I'd avoid getting anything faster.
