GTX 550Ti vs GTX 650
I currently own a GTX550Ti (ASUS 1GB DDR5). I want to know if it's worth upgrading to a GTX 650. If not, should I upgrade my processor instead to the maximum my motherboard can take to gain better performance in gaming/(overall)? I can upgrade to hexacore (6) processor - Phenom II 1065T. I want to be able to run Crysis 3 on high settings. I usually turn off AA and set shadows to low if I get low frame rates. My "monitor" is a Samsung 32" LCD television hooked up through a HDMI cable with the resolution set at 1360 x 768. Current specs: CPU - AMD Phenom II 965 X4 @ 3.4Ghz RAM - 16GB DDR3 1333 GPU - GTX 550Ti HDD - Hitachi 500GB @ 7200 RPM SATA III Mobo - MSI 880GMS-E35

From the 550Ti to the 650 it looks like the GTX650 in minimally better than the GTX550ti, looking at a Bar Graph. 121 GFlops looking at specs....17.5% Gain.

My Opinion is no more important or right than yours. But if your using the LATEST drivers, go back to the prior set.

Piss Poor tech support blame all issues on drivers and assumes that your an idiot. Find a set that you know worked and see if the problem exists still.

""Don't f with it if it ain't broken!""

Constantly updating drivers is a good way to F'up the whole system.
