Cons: - Fan is loud and inadequate- Fan speed is controlled inefficiently- Not a good performer at 2048 x 1152- You will need to increase voltage to even reach 1GHz core

Pros: - Cheap, got it for $100- Some room for overclocking right out of the box despite being factory overclocked
Comment:
Got this to replace a 9800GTX+, the performance difference is almost negligible, aside from the new technologies like SM5.0 and DX11 this card is not really better than the 9800GTX+ which is a midrange card from 3 years ago. If you can, save a little and get a GTX 560 Ti, because this car performs rather poorly for today's games if you game at 1920 x 1080 or more, even after overclocking it as much as possible with the stock cooler.To OC'ers you will need to increase the voltage, despite what you may find on various review sites and forums from existing owners. And you will have to let your OC'ing software handle the fan speed because its capped at 60% speed due to its loud noise at speeds above.

Cons: none i can see yet

Pros: Price / Performance = value, quiet, low power consumption
Comment:
Needed a budget card to replace my Radeon HD4830. This card is 50% faster for $80. When I did the math on Passmark given the latest pricing - it is the best value of all cards.

Cons: Not ideal for 1080p if wanting to play games in high/ultra settings

Pros: Cheap, Good frame rates at 720p or 1280x1024 at high settings in games. Good replacement card for older systems.
Comment:
I use to have a 8800GTS 640mb card but it burned out. Was looking for a cheap replacement card but with decent performance. My PC is almost 5 years old and still very usable. If you are like me and don't want to invest in a whole new PC and you have a older lower resolution monitor then the EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti Fpb is a good cheap card. A noticeable improvement over my old card. Recommended, if you had my old card or older.

Cons: Haven't encountered any serious problems yet.

Pros: Performs as advertised, good sized fan and heat sink, runs fairly cool
Comment:
FPS rates are as advertised, runs fairly cool with it's moderately sized fan and heat sink. Only problem I had was that I was getting about 20 FPS when I first put the PC together but after some fiddling (not sure what fixed it exactly) it is getting decent FPS

Cons: temp is reaching 74c during ,which is not a big temp ,but I was expecting 65c .

Pros: overall a good card for a nice price .
Comment:
I purchased this unit from the Scarborough store after returning a bad xfx gt 630 . this one works fine ,was a fully sealed product . ,nice frame rates in all games (my resolution is 1280 x 1024 ).If you add 20$ you will get a gtx 460 1gb , which is more powerful than gtx550 .I choose this one because my psu is cx400 .I had a cyclone gtx 460 1gb before .during gameplay the temp of that unit was around 63~65c .but this gtx 550 ti is hitting 73 ~74 c during gameplays .i expected 65c ..For this price this is a nice unit.If you have a good psu get a gtx 460 .

Cons: Not completely sealed. Just by looking at the images, I thought the internals wouldn't be visible at all.

Pros: Good Price. Low Power Consumption. Great Performance. Stays cool with stock cooler. Very Overclockable!!
Comment:
Overall very pleased. Plays all the current 2010-2012 DX11 games at 720P, no hiccups!

Cons: I don't like mini hdmi

Pros: Quiet, Doesn't take alot of power
Comment:
I'm not a fan of the mini-hdmi connector (maybe it has to be that way) However this card didn't give me a mini-hdmi adapter. I did get a DVI-D to VGA adapter.I'm not really a hard core PC gamer. I wanted a card that plays decently newer stuff and is quiet and doesn't take alot of power. I was actually going to guy one of those silent video cards asus makes. I'm glad I got this one instead. I'm also a Nvidia fan as well. Their stuff is usually very good.

Cons: Painfully slow. Slower than a non Ti 460 or a classic 275 GTX.

Pros: Low price, low temperature (40-60 degrees range), low power consumption (about 100 watts), low noise, DX11 support.
Comment:
Bought the card as a replacement for a 3-year old 275 GTX card that went bad. As it turnes out, the 550 Ti is a lot slower than the card I was replacing. I went for the cheapest solution to the problem and bought the second identical Ti card for the SLI configuration. Still, the 2 new 550's combined are 5-10% less powerful than the good old 275 GTX in tests. Anti-aliasing and real-time displacement absolutely kill it. Even Nvidia demos made for lower class cards run below 30 frames per second. If you want good performance out of games reliant on GPU and using PhysX, spend $200+ on a non Ti card instead. Ti to non-Ti is what Celeron is to Pentium.

Had two of these cards set up in SLI. Working great so far, I was worried about the sound with two of them but they are not bad at all.

Cons: None as of now.

Pros: This card is ridiculous for its price. The quality of this car is just superb. Beats a lot of cards with higher costs.
Comment:
For gaming, this card will last you a very long time. You can even use crossfire technology with this when its getting to be a little under par. Works with a 450W power supply (be safe and go higher). Its NVidia, so it is physx capable, making it a sweet card to work with for gaming.

Cons: Not much for overclocking, but who cares as it's already at 951MHz?

Pros: Amazing performance per wattLow low priceQuietCool
Comment:
Coming from an 8800GT, this thing is quieter, uses less power, produces less heat, and performs better. My 8800GT got 11300 3DMark06, while the GTX 550 Ti gets about 16900. Great budget gaming card, beating out the HD5770 and GTS 450 while being way less expensive.

Cons: This card is large, be sure your case can handle it

Pros: Lots of horsepowerEVGA warrantyAll you need is in the box
Comment:
I ordered this card to upgrade from an 8800GT, and it did not disappoint. I'm running games on twice the settings that the 8800 could handle with no issues at all. It fit nicely in my HAF912 case (older cases may have an issue), and the fan on it is very quiet. Lots of horsepower for the wattage it consumes, I'd recommend this to any budget-conscious gamer.

Purchased for a budget gaming rig, and it does the job just fine for the price it was purchased at.Make sure you register the card at EVGA to get your 10 year warranty.
