Sure.. Just make sure it comes from a good brand (corsair, seasonic).. Avoid cheap junks..

Just to let you know make sure you have good amp on the 12v ramp, that what you need to check, I have a Corsair HX520W and im running a Q6600 with a Gtx480, playing a game at full detail, im getting 300Watt usage with an amp meter for the full system, wich im running 6 fans and 4 hard drive. I think power supply those day with 1000W are a bit overrated unless you start overclock over 4ghz and SLI. Your 550w could run it, depend what is the brand and model.
