The Video Card says that it needs a minimum of 450W. Will the 550W be enough for the entire build?

520W would be enough. 550W is plenty
Are you sure??
I mean I'm just making sure, but it says, "A minimum 450W system power supply(with 12V current rating of 40A)."
For recommended system requirements.
Haha alright. The number sounds legitimate. Thanks a lot!
One thing, somebody on the forums had their OCZ PSU blow out. After reading countless reviews I still think the PSU is sufficient, but it is just a headsup.
You could just get a Seasonic 520W to be safe
OCZ does not make the best of power supplies.

not the builder series, the enthusiast or professional series.
TOTALLY NOT Banned
Your build will pull like, 255-300w, the latter under rather pushing overclocks. But I doubt you would reach that far.
So yes, 550w is more than fine.
