  1. The xfx 550w should work fine it a well build quality psu.
    Even overclock I don't think your build would pull more then 450w max .
  2. Best answer
    Yes , the XFX has 44 amps on the 12v rail , which is plenty for your specs and some room for overclocking.
  3. Psu would be just fine for your build.
