Any time you do an upgrade you need to figure your worst case current draw. I don't think the 550watt PSU is going to serve you well. Might want to look in to upgrading that. And please don't buy any cheap knock off garbage. Get a good one and have room for even more upgrades down the pike.

Here is a powersupply calculator:

Agree to abouve. Newer go cheap on the psu! That will come back to haunt you pretty soon. It's like buying a sports car and then get an old Wolksvagen bubble engine for it.

Get one from a reknown brand like Corsair, Seasonic or OCZ for ex. A 750W will be pretty future proof.
