It's a good PSU, but you leave no headroom for overclocking with it. I'd get this

Or this (preferable)

So if I just keep everything as is, it would be fine, or should I return it after some use and get a better one???

You are definitely going to want to get the higher wattage PSU. The 550 will work, but you will have no room to overclock. So it would be kind of useless to have the overclockable cpu at that point. So the 550 watt would get you started on the setup of your build, which is fine, but I'd just cancel the 550 and reorder the 650 or 750 I suggested. If you plan on adding a second gpu in the near future, then an 850 to 1000 watt would be best as pureblackfire suggested.

Ok thank you so for the time being I'll just run it with the 550, but when I get the chance i'll swap them by the way how is PcPartPicker's power estimate??

I'd go up on the wattage. 650 for single gpu and 850-1000 if you plan on crossfire.
