The 550 ti is a much better card than a Radeon HD 5550 or 5570.

It's also significantly more expensive.

Depends on which HD 5800 you're talking about. Both the HD 5850 and HD 5870 are quite a bit faster, anywhere from 1.5-2x. If it is the HD 5830, then it is a toss up as they bounce back and forth. One big advantage the 550 Ti has over the HD 5830 is that it uses quite a bit less power than the HD 5830,

which would equate to a lot less heat and likely less fan noise. Comes down to which you would rather have.

That makes a lot more sense.

The 5850 is it, as others have remarked.
