Will my PSU suit my build?

Here is my build. My PSU is the Antec BP 550W and my GPU is the r9 280x. Everything else is also in my build, though I might get an SSD too.

Will that PSU suit it? It would be really helpful if it does because I already bought it ;) I'd really like my parts to not blow up though, so

Okay. Are you sure?

some sources list that GPU needing at least 600W (for the whole build). Extreme Calculator says I need around 470-490 (depends on how many extra things I add).

If I need to to protect my parts, I'll upgrade my PSU but I've yet to find a modular PSU in that price/watt range (and I'm on a budget /:)

will it work if needed?

I mean it's somewhat possible except I need to know by Thursday and then it will be a whole before I can get another modular psu for even close price.
