Okay, the rest of your system are great...
BUT, why do you want HD 5550???!

Get at least HD5770 or higher (HD5850 or GTX470) and fly with your PC... :)

im planning on getting a 5850 but i cant afford one at the moment so i was just wondering if i would get any noticable performance increase over the 2600xt until i can afford a 5850

Oh, for just temporary, right?
so it's okay, get HD5570 at least... It MUCH faster than 2600XT... :)
