Default Gpu

Im looking at building a computer and I have been going back and forth on all my components. I think I have settled on everything but the GPU. I will be using the computer for everything including gaming. The two games I currently play are League of Legends (doesnt take much to run) and SC2. I would like to be able to run others in the future though.
Current Build:
Case: Rosewill Challenger Gaming ATX Mid
PSU: Rosewill 600w
MoBo: AsRock z77 Extreme 4
CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge
SSD: Crucial M4 64GB (I plan on adding more later)
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB
DVD Drive: ASUS 24X DVD Burner......

Finally the GPU
Newegg.com - EVGA 01G-P3-1556-KR GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) FPB 1GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
or
Newegg.com - EVGA 01G-P3-1561-AR GeForce GTX 560 Ti FPB (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Based on the games I play now do I need the upgrade? My budget is 750$ give or take. If the upgraded GPU is worth it Ill have to talk my wife into letting me spend more :P

Im sitting at 740$ ish right now. I havent bought anything yet so "Current Build" was inaccurate. I listed what I would like to buy. I hear great things as well as horror stories about SSD. Is it worth it?

If you could stretch your budget I would recommend getting an HD 7850. It is better than both the 550ti and 560ti, and will also OC past the 570.

As for your question, yes SSDs are worth it. Normally people would suggest 128GB as minimum size for SSDs but if 64GB is all your budget would allow then go for it
