Yes it's more than enough , get the 550w for the extra power at a great price.

The 450W unit would be enough for what you have now, easily. The 550W unit gives you more upgrade room, for example if you ever decide on a significant graphics card upgrade.

I posted a 450w unit above that will also power your specs and is cheaper and a very solid unit.

Don't go cheap on the PSU. You can buy a cheap "600W" PSU that will turn out to be good for no more than 300W cleanly, and at a 350W-400W load will blow electronic chunks, possibly killing attached parts. XFX PSUs are made by Seasonic, and as far as I know, they don't know how to build a bad PSU.

Nope unless you stick with your PSU.
