Is a 550W PSU [Corsair 550W VX Series PSU] enough for this system? I'm having trouble powering the GPU atm.


Asus M5A78L-M/USB3 AMD Socket AM3+ Motherboard
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition 3.2 GHz
Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro CPU Cooler
Samsung 1TB Hard Drive SATAII 32MB
OCZ 120GB Agility 3 SSD - SATA-III
G-Skill 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600Mhz RipjawsX

Radeon HD 6870 OEM - 1 GB GDDR5

Any help would be appreciated ;)

550 should power that, and 2 yrs should still be within warranty.
