If this is a gaming build, you'll need a dedicated GPU. Everything else looks good; although, I'd recommend you step the PSU up a little bit to give you a little breathing room. Something like this...

PC Power and Cooling Silencer MK III 600W Modular 80PLUS Bronze Power Supply

Either this...

Radeon HD 6850 1GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Or this...

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6870 1GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Either of these cards would be excellent choices. They'll even run quite a few titles such as skyrim or bf3 at medium to high settings. I just can't recommend the gtx 550ti. Not hating on nvidia, but that particular card is weak in comparison to the 6850/6870.

Just to clarify, so you don't think I'm being biased...the gtx 670 currently would be my GPU of choice. It unfortunately is way out of your budget, lol.

Here's some benchmarks...
