First off, should I? I could always sell this one on anyways and make back 80% of what I paid. And then secondly, what is the "hip" new card all the youngsters are using these days?

What power supply is your PC using? Your specs are more than definitely fine but you want to be sure your power supply is able to deliver constant stable power to the GPU.

Ooh, thats another thing. Would it be a better spendature of money to buy another 550 and just sli them instead of upgrading to the 580?
