The power draw of your system configuration is around 212 Watts.

If the Cooler Master Real Power 550W (RS-550-ACLY) is still in good condition it should have no problem powering that system.

Since that PSU model has got to be at least eight years old I would suspect it is unable to produce the power stated on its label, while still staying within ATX12V specifications, due to capacitor aging.

The Seasonic S12II 620 Bronze, that @SR-71 Blackbird linked to, is a very good deal. It is way more than you currently need but it is ready to handle almost any system upgrade you may want to make in the future.
