Don't even think about gaming with this. One might contemplate doing so with the GDDR5 version, but certain not with the DDR2 version.
But, for HTPC usage and so forth... it may be a good choice. Keep in mind that Tom's Hardware found that the 5750 is the minimum Radeon to achieve maximum image quality for video playback.
not sure if you knew, but there are also GDDR3 version 5550s (like the Asus cards)- they game rank fine on toms hierarchy (two classes above the ddr2 version)
but if people want to play multiplayer games where hi res and hi FPS are a concern I wouldnt consider any 5550, period.
