Hello :) 

I plan on upgrading to a GTX 570 and was wondering whether my Corsair VX 550 be able to handle it? I really don't want to change the PSU if I don't need to as it would require spending more money right now so thought I would ask here first, before buying the GTX 570 card. My detailed system specs are:

Intel Core i5 2500k
True Black 120 (Push-Pull)
Gigabyte P67A-UD3R-B3
Corsair 4 GB XMS3
Powercolor HD 5850
Mushkin Callisto 60 GB SSD
Asus Xonar DX
Corsair VX 550
NZXT Sentry LX
Logitech Z5500 D
Logitech G19
Razer Mamba
Lian Li A70F Full Tower

Please let me know.

You should do just fine with that PSU, obviously if you were to SLI you'd want to upgrade, but a single card is within its limits.

QQ is right. The 550W is enough to power your setup. Full system load will probably be around 370W. Just add on the GTX 570* and don't worry about it.
