Ordered wrong PSU

So, here is my build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/cGrdrH

Its telling me 438 W

My intention (and many users recommendations) was to ge a 650 W.

I just went in to track my oder and realized that I had ordered a 550 W Seasonic 80+ Gold PSU :(. Its coming in 2 days.

Will it still be ok? Why had everyone recommended a 650 W instead of a 550 W?

I´m so bummed out, and need expert feedback soon in order to take action.

Thanks a lot guys! You are my only light in this perilous venture.

Don't worry you'll be fine with a 550 watt unit

That Seasonic should be fine, even with parts on your list plus (5) USB devices, (4) 120mm fans, capacitor aging... and still have room left over. Unless you intend to run (2) video cards instead of just the one listed?
