XFX pro 550w and Sapphire R9 280x Toxic

After my 7950 vapour x died on me I'm in the market for a new graphics card and have decided on the R9 280x Toxic. My only concern is that my PSU might not be able to keep up.

Rest of my specs are:
i5 3570k at stock.
120gb Samsung 840
300gb 7200 rpm WD.

PSU is rated 44 amps on the +12v and is a single rail.

I don't plan on doing any OCing until I replace the PSU but I did want to add another SSD.

    Yes it's enough power on the 12v rail , as long as you not overclocking.

    SSD's don't use hardly any power your good to go.
  3. Thanks for the help.
