In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce FX 5500 are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 EVGA Classified Ultra Edition.

The GTX 560 Ti was released over three years more recently than the GeForce FX 5500, and so the GTX 560 Ti is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce FX 5500 when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very poor performance, so rather than upgrading from one to the other you should consider looking at more powerful GPUs. Neither of these will be able to run the latest games in any playable way.

The GTX 560 Ti has 1024 MB more video memory than the GeForce FX 5500, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 560 Ti also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 560 Ti has 121.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce FX 5500, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 560 Ti is massively better than the GeForce FX 5500.

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 EVGA Classified Ultra Edition has 448 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce FX 5500 has 4. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 Ti is 726 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce FX 5500 is 1. The GTX 560 Ti having 725 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 560 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce FX 5500.

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 EVGA Classified Ultra Edition requires 210 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce FX 5500. We would recommend a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GTX 560 Ti.
