I would go with the HD6850 instead of the GTX550ti The HD6850 has more horsepower and overclocking head room.

I also like the fact that the Mobo has 2 PCI-E slots so you can go Sli/CFx in the future.

Also you get lucky and can unlock the 4th core on the Cpu.

Other than that a very nice build to get you PC gaming.
