Graphics card upgrade 8800 GTX to GTX 550 Ti

I've ordered a new graphics card, a Gigabyte GeForce GTX550 Ti with 1GB of GDDR5 memory, overclock edition.

This one: Gigabyte GeForce GTX550 Ti Graphics Card (1GB GDDR5, PCI-E): Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

My existing card is a 8800 GTX:

The new card may not be that much faster, but my 8800 GTX is only DX10.

So, some before and after benchmarks...

So was it worth it? Hell, I think my 220 does better than my 8800. I popped in the 8800 and "tried" to play BF3, man it was choppy as hell.

Did you have a particular game in mind Dan or was it just time to upgrade?

When does the new grace you with it's presence? ":O}

Did you ever have a chance to line 'em all up on one motherboard, that should have given you enough power to see the end of the world! ":O}

I wish, never had an SLI board. But I'll be sure my next one is.

The GTX is quite a bit faster than a GT.
