Will this 550W PSU be enough for a Sapphire Radeon HD 6850?

I bought an Asus desktop a year or two ago, and needless to say, it can't run crap. I have picked out a video card and a PSU to upgrade to around Christmas, but I need to know if this 550W will be enough for my current specs.

Video card:
PC specs:

I will be playing SWTOR almost exclusively on this PC, aside from the occasional Steam/F2P game. Will this 550W handle my setup?

Please don't recommend a $250 card or crossfiring 2 cards. I only plan to play SWTOR, Diablo 3, League of Legends, etc. Nothing too graphically demanding. :)

I just bought the same graphic card. My suggestion is dont get this card.

That PSU should be fine for 2 x 6850's. I like Antec PSU's, their customer service if very good, if you end up needing some service. The PSU has a 3 yr. warranty and has 37A on the combined 12v rails (used mainly for GPU power).

I've always had good experiences with Sapphire GPU's. I'm not sure how good Powercolor is at this point in time, so I can't comment on them and their quality.
