There are two 18 AMP rails in that psu. I don't know how much goes to your vga power though. I say its a toss up. It meets Nvidia's requirements. But its not a great power supply, if it were a Seasonic I'd say yeah.

The Cooler Master Elite Power 460W (RS-460-PSAR-J3 / RS-460-PSAP-J3), with its combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 27 Amps and with one 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors, is sufficient to power your system configuration with a single GeForce GTX 550 Ti.

That power supply is unable to deliver the 460 Watts specified on its label as proven during Hardware Secrets review of that exact model:

Max. Output on Combined +12V1 & +12V2: 324 Watts (i.e. 27 Amps derived using Ohm's Law) as long as your system is drawing less than 54 Watts from the combined +3.3V & +5V rails.

The I and J designation in the model number is irrelevant. The J in the model number indicates that it is a more current revision of that model.

That power supply is actually a 400 Watt power supply made by FSP Group.
