The RP550 should be fine but it's odd that it doesn't have a 6pin pcie connector.

When people say RP550 we (well at least I) refer to the upgraded version.
Newegg.com - Rosewill RP550V2-S-SL 550W SLI Ready-ATX12V V2.01 Power Supply 115/230 V CSA,UL,TUV,FCC - Power Supplies

As you see it actually has two pci-e power connectors. Honestly it has more cables than it needs >.<

The cables are not sleeved like the higher ends but you can sleeve them yourself...it's what you expect from a budget CPU.

I was looking at the original RP550.
