My Asus 660 ti OC gpu just arrived this afternoon and I'm expecting a Corsair CXM 500W psu tomorrow. However, while reading the requirements, it said it required a minimum requirement of 550W and I'm unsure what to do at this point. Please help :(

It should be fine. I have an ASUS 660ti and only use a 450w psu. I've never had any problems, so assuming the psu you have isn't defective, I think you'll be okay.

Yes; you are fine with that PSU. Also, wattage is not the most important thing, but rather the combined amps on the +12V rail. The PSU is required to have two 6-pin (or 6+2-pin) PCIe supplementary power connectors and a combined current rating of at least 12.5A on the +12V rail. The PSU that you bought is a Corsair CXM 500W. It comes with two 6-pin PCIe power connectors and a single +12V rail of 38A. So it is more than sufficient to power your GPU with room for overclocking. And it's a good quality PSU.
