Hi all Is this graphics card more powerfull than the 8800gtx or is it just a rebrabded version of it. The reason I ask is that I have the 8800gtx and was looking to upgrade for not a lot of money.

The GTX 550 Ti is a much better card. You can compare them here. link text

Here is another comparison of many cards to give you an idea as to their performance. The 8800GTX isn't actually on there, but the 8800 Ultra and the 9800GT are, and they were very similar cards. You will see that the GTX 550 Ti has about double the power them.

Having briefly looked at my above link, you may also want to consider the GTX 460 and the Radeon 6850. Both are similarly priced and would appear to have slightly better performance.

I would go with the 6850.
