I find it hard to believe that is 400 bucks! That's a pretty good deal for that, just make sure it has expandability options (PCI-Express x 16 slot, suitable power supply, etc.)

I'm guessing the 9550 is AGP? You can't use it, then, because the only slots this computer has available are PCI and PCI-Express x 16 (just checked).
