the most recent GTX 550 Ti I owned, the EVGA model, was doing around 9k PPD, only high value WU were coming in, at 2510 points or 5187 points. On the same units the GTX 470 was doing around 12k PPD. So don't keep your hopes too high. GTX 550 Ti is a weird chip for GPU folding, me I had a lot of issues with them, had 3 before giving up on them completely, all of them experiencing the same issues, I would not recommend them for folding, you might want to go with a GTS 450 instead.
