Is this PSU enough for an R9 390 (among other things)?

OK, so I know the PSU is pretty good (tier 2, SeaSonic OEM, fully modular, gold efficiency). But I was wondering if the 550W was beefy enough for the 390, which I've heard is a pretty big power drain, as well as my other components. I do plan on OC'ing the CPU.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Oh, and if you could see any other ways to improve the build, feel free to comment.

with the 390 at stock you'll still have plenty of room. if you plan on overclocking the gpu as much as possible, go for a 650 watt. you'll want at least one intake fan for the front of the case.

So far pc system with single CPU and single GPU is sufficient with good 500W rated PSU. So you're good.

I have a Seasonic M12 620w it is TIER 1 PSU would that be enough to run a 390? I don't plan on overclocking with my cpu.

this is not a "tier 1" psu. it would be enought to run any single cpu system with a 390 in it.
