Will my Corsair TX 550M 550Watts run this setup, graphics card?

Hey guys I recently bought a Corsiar TX 550M with 550W.
It has a single 12V, and at +12V@45A

I got the power supply for really cheap and am hoping I didn't make a mistake, I got it 2 days ago at frys for 49.99. Here is the newegg link of my PSU

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139032

The reviews are not good unfortunately, maybe this is why it was so cheap.

Here are my specs

CPU:
Intel i5-3330
3.0 Ghz/6MB L3 Cache

Motherboard:
Asus P8z77-v-LX

GPU:
asus nivida geforce 660ti

8gb ram dual viper, intel viper 3

windows 8 operating system.

On the box the gpu, says it needs at minimum of 550W, and 12V@38A, so I barely meet the requirements, is that okay? Will there be problems of "barley" meeting the requirements? I could found anything about this online. Also, it has only one rail, is this okay?

As you can see I know next to knowing about computers and also English is not my first language. Thank you for your time.

  1. You should be just fine with that PSU but instead of the 660Ti get the GTX 760 http://amzn.to/15J0OZX It's a much better card and doesn't cost much more.
