Palit 560 smart edition or 550 Ti?
 
I've found two similar priced video cards and I was wondering which one, a Asus GTX 550 Ti (not the direct cu version), or, a Palit GTX 560 smart edition, but I was confused by the fact the Palit was a lot lower priced than most of the other 560's so I was thinking there's got to be a reason for that, so which one should I get?

560, the 550 blows so hard for gaming. If you can swing a bit more money i would get a 660 though.

I second that. Avoid the 550, try to get a 660 but if not, the 560 is a good value.

Just remember that the GTX 560 in question is the SE version and NOT a fully enabled card.
