Default Corsair 550 VX

I was just wondering will my Corsair 550W VX Series PSU - 120mm Fan, 5 Year Warranty - Ebuyer be enough to power one of the new processors and all the things i need to upgrade to?

Unless you plan to go crossfire 4870s or SLI gtx280s, then yes.

it runs all my stuff just fine. it also runs SLI 8800gts 512, and a gtx280 no problem.
