Why just those two? What are the price limits? If picking between those two I would have to go with the 9550, it beat the 5500 in most benchmarks.

Make sure to pick a card with the 128-bit memory interface. Better performance than 64-bit.

Let him check the 6600LE if he's on a budget. It's better than the 5500.
