OK first off Raidmax is not a brand you want. However without knowing your system specs I can't recommend anything because I don't know what you need. Also none of the units on that list standout as something I would recommend.

So list your complete system specs. Is there anywhere else you can buy from? I understand you are in NZ and might have limited options but this list might help.

A MUCH better selection there.

Some excellent ones.

Antec HCG 520.

Antec VP 550

Zippy HP2 500w

Antec NeoEco 520

XFX Core 550w ( Probably be my choice. All XFX units are made by Seasonic and Seasonic is the best, )

Any of those units are excellent. The XFX would be my personal choice but all of them are good.

Yes, you can run the new card along with the rest of the system with the XFX 550w.

Best solution

Oh yes. 550 watts is sufficient for any single graphics card except maybe the GTX 780 and Titan. You will have plenty of power to overclock as much as you want as well.

Here is a handy list for future reference.
