your temps are 48/50 while gaming ? that seems pretty low to me......well within range of what is considered safe. I had a palit 560ti and it never gave me any problems. I think you're fine.

you seriously do not need one. but if you have to spend your money then....I have no idea. I'm not sure there is a cooler for a 550ti honestly. because it doesn't produce much heat....

Well if you really wanted a VGA cooler for your card (despite the good temps) you can check out the Accelero Twin Turbo II from arctic cooling.
