Wow, i didn't know you can get comp that cheap, like I'm in shock!
VERY GOOD BUILD! Can you save up a bit more and get a better video card? That is really going to help you out in gaming.

instead of getting X550, get geforce 6600 for the same price
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814170071

6600 has 8 pixel pipelines, X550 has only 4 pipelines


Edit: Also have a look on these cards, they are better than X550 and same price
