  1. Simple answer is NO! Does everything have to come from Amazon?

    You need a much higher performance PSU for your high-performance gaming system.

    This is the cheapest PSU from Amazon, I'd even consider http://pcpartpicker.com/part/cooler-master-power-supply-rs550pcarn1us

    I'd get a better PSU from another supplier, cheaper.

    Would a 600W be enough, or do i need more?
  3. It's not the power 550W is fine
    It's not the efficiency, 80 Bronze is fine too
    It's the performance of the parts. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-2547993/psu-tier-list.html

    An excellent XFX 550W Bronze PSU us available for less than $30. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207013&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-PCPartPicker,%20LLC-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=
