The card will work just fine, any particular reason why you are buying that card?

What are you intending to do with the computer? If it's just 2D desktop stuff like surfing and a bit of office work then the el cheapo 8400GS would be perfect but if you intend to do anything more than that then you are going to need a bit more firepower than an 8400GS has.

The HD4550 is the most powerful out of those three cards and is three tiers above the 8400GS in the Tom's hierarchy chart but is still several tiers below what are considered as the "gaming" cards.
