As long as you don't run Prime95 and Furmark at the same time, you will have no issues. It will power your rig fine. If you got the older Corsair VX550W, you get an extra 7 Amps on the 12v rail but that PSU can be loud at high load.

Edit: Upton further research, you can run whatever you want and you will pull 400w at the very most! In game you would only pull 250-300w at a huge push! So yeah that PSU is perfectly fine.
