GTX550Ti would be an overkill Since a HD6570 or HD66770 would handle what you are doing fine for less money! If you take up gaming the the 550Ti is a good choice.

I did not know what really happened, but I can't open any tigerdirect Link!

For that kind of usage, which really is not that demanding, I believe 550 ti is too much for that (yes I knew you're trying to choose 550 ti by rolli59's post). So I think it's a good idea for you to get a cheaper priced card and save more money, like a 7750 or a cheaper 6670.
