Pretty simple question here, just wondering if this PSU will handle my Computer Specs.

Computer Specs:

Monitor: Acer S211HL bd 22" Class LED Monitor - 12M:1 Contrast Ratio, 5MS response time, 1080P, 1920x1080

OS: Windows 7 64BIT

Tower Case: Diablo Tek Elite ATX Mid Tower (Comes with a 450W PSU but I am switching it out to meet the requirements on my Graphics Card)

Power Supply:

Processor: AMD Phenom II x6 1045T - Six Core, 6MB L3 Cache, 3MB L2 Cache, 2.70GHz, Socket AM3, 95W, Fan

Graphics Card: Radeon HD 6870

MotherBoard: Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2P

RAM: ADATA 4GB x2 DDR3 (8GB Total)

Hardrive: 1TB Seagate Barracuda

Disc Drive: Lite-On IHAS124-04 Internal DVD Write

Will that PSU handle this or is it worth it to spend the extra $15 to get a PSU with 550w?

550w would be good.

Its sufficient, however 550 watts would be a better choice. Also, just out of curiosity What is it you're planning to do with this computer? A 965 Deneb would be a better choice than the 1045 Thuban if you're building a budget gamer.
