Helllo!

As I was upgrading my PC, I ran into an issue - Will my PSU give enough power?

Specs:

ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX
Corsair LP Vengeance RAM 8GB
CLUB 3D GTX 550Ti 2GB version
Killer 2100 NIC
AMD Phenom II x6 1075T
Crucial m4
Samsung 500GB HD 7200rpm

PSU Corsair CX500

I've used PSU calculators and they show that it's enough, but I'd like to have others opinions.

Thanks alot!

i think it should be fine for that system,but if you plan to upgrade to a better video card in the future,maybe a 650watt psu may suit your needs better

Yes. It is a solid budget unit that is outclassed by better designs which are more expensive but still miles better than other generic psus.
