using a dedicated card over Integrated is almost always beneficial no matter how big or small.

That FX5500 will be a lot faster then the Intergrated graphics, a whole lot faster.

The FX5500 is about 2-3 times as powerful as the integrated graphics.  But an FX 5600 is quite a bit better than the FX 5500, and about the same price.
