Default 1gb Xfx Hd 5550

Hi,

Building a PC for my parents soon.
Their budget is around £500 (excluding peripherals).
The graphics card I've chosen is the: 1GB XFX HD 5550 (details in link below)

http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/1GB-X...-and-STORMRISE

Whilst it looks like a good card, i can't find any reviews on the product, so i'm wondering if it's actually any good ;P

The card cost £60 from Scan, ($92 US)

So if you know this card isn't any good, please let me know if there are any others you would reccommend, has to be around the £60 mark though

Thanks.
