Is a GTX 550 ti a good gaming card.

So I just bought the GTX 550 ti and I'm installing windows so can't use yet.
I heard it can handle bf3 MAXED? That true?

Here's an interesting chart to see how a given card compares to other cards. They update this chart periodically.

Most peeps play medium-high at 1680x1050 with that card.
You can take a look here at some ppl discussing about that card.

Also depends on how much ram and your cpu and at what Ghz the cpu is at.

Well I'm building a gaming rig and have an i7 ready to be over clocked to 4.2 maby 4.4 as I'm water cooling and I have the case. But there different sockets so I'm keeping the pentium duel 2.8ghz for now maybe get a core 2 quad in the next month if I get the cash.
