It is enough but CM PSU's are hit and miss products, I suggest going with similar sized Antec, Corsair, Seasonic or even XFX or OCZ.

The minimum recomended for a GTX560ti is 500W with a minimum of 12V 30A rating, I would consider getting at least a 650W if you are intending on doing any overclocking of the GPU or CPU. The extra headroom would allow for other components also.

Yes a GX550 would be enough.But I would prefer corsair TX550 or xfx core edition 550.

I'm with rolli59's post.
An OZC ModX is a better budget option then a CM GX.

There is still enough extra headroom for overclocking and other purpose.CPU=100W,GPU=200W other components 100W.These psu can provide around 44A on 12v rails ,so headroom=12x44-100(cpu)-200(gpu)-100(other component)=128W.Which is more than enough.Also note that the Cpu and gpu wattage are greatly exaggerated and probably never use so much power even when overclocked.

550watt would be plenty quality 500watt would even run your rig fine.

Antec out of the three, Cooler master is hit and miss.

The cooler master GX series failed a few reviews, the bigger units would start going out of spec with too much noise on the 3.3 V rail once they hit about 70% load. I wouldn't run any of the GX series units over about 50% load, but the best choice is just to pick a different unit from the start that doesn't have that issue.
