Between the HD6670 and the GTX550 I'd go for the GTX550.

Btw, 160 for the CPU is way, way overpriced - you can get it for 88.95 from eBuyer. Where are you buying these components?
Desktop i5-4440 - ASRock Z77 Extreme4 - EVGA GTX970 - 4x4GB 1600MHz - Samsung 850 EVO 250GB - Be Silent Base 800 - 3TB+1TB+640GB
Laptop i7-3740QM @ 2.7GHz, 2x4GB 1600Mhz, GT640M, OCZ Agility 3 120GB
Smartphone HTC One M8 - Sense 7 - 6.0
