I remember when I was in college and sometimes would try to decide on a computer upgrade or paying rent that month. Thanks to the stiff competition between AMD and NVIDIA there are a lot more choices today vs. back then. For those of you trying to stay on a very tight budget but would like some DirectX 11 goodness ZOTAC heeds your call with the ZOTAC AMP! GeForce GTX 550 Ti factory overclocked card. Legit Reviews pushes this $124.99 card to its limits on our test bench to see if you can have decent graphics in the sub $125 range.
We have to say that ZOTAC took an entry level graphics card and turned it into an attractive package with a dash of overclocking and silent cooling. While the ZOTAC AMP! GeForce GTX 550 Ti struggles to perform at its highest supported resolution it is not targeted for those users and is really meant for gamers running 1680 x 1050 resolutions and below.
