Since my 750w xfx PSU made a popping noise and smoke came out i decided to return it even though it works to avoid damage.
I have a Ultra LSP 550w power supply and am thinking of using it until my new one comes.

Will it run good with a:

i5 3570k with a single gtx 670

You're running quite close to what the PSU can provide as it only has 360W on the 12V line
