DO I NEED TO UPGRADE MY PSU?

Not sure if this like to my parts list will work but...:

https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Mango_/saved/#view=7jsTwP

Anyway, pc part picker said my total wattage would be 327 watts. I bought a psu 200 watts over that. Then i take a look at my gpu, and it says MINIMUM 500w psu. I only have a Corsair VS550. Will this be enough to power my build? My gpu is a gigabyte GeForce Gtx 970 4gb

PLS HALP!

550w is enough for a 970.

Have you already purchased your parts?

You will be fine, but the Corsair VS series is a iffy psu. I would retire it after the warrenty, and if you havent bought it, change to the nonmodular xfx 550 watt unit
