Get the Radeon 6850 for a couple more. It is much better than the 550ti. Get a better PSU, For one 6850, a 500W PSU by XFX or Seasonic is more than enough.

You don't need 16GB of RAM. 8GB is more than enough for playing all games on Ultra Graphics. 8GB is $40, so save yourself $55 and go for a Radeon 6870.

8GB of Memory: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ($40)
Radeon 6870: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ($150 After Rebate)

Here is two better PSU's, they use less power but it will be fine, they are the best value PSU's around.
Antec 650W EarthWatts 80Plus Bronze - $55 (After Rebate)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

OCZ ModXStream 80Plus Modular PSU - $50 (After Rebate)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Here is a much better PC case and is $50 (After Rebate)

Follow what I have put up here and you will have a much better gaming system that will still be able to run lots of games on high settings.
