    Default Will 550W PSU be enough for my soon to plan build?

    Mobo: MSI Z97 Gaming 5
    CPU: Intel Pentium G3258 AE (ofcourse ill be upgrading this soon) OC ~ 4.4ghz
    RAM: Corsair Vengeance Pro 8GB
    GPU: Sapphire AMD R9 280x Tri x (I might OC this also)
    HDD: 2 HDD
    Fans: 9 static pressure fans
    PSU: Seasonic G-Series 550W Gold PSU


    Will 550W be enough for this with FULL OVERCLOCK CPU+GPU? If yes, will it be on a high load consumption?

    Absolutely OK.

    It will be high load (~400w) only when you run Furmark+ at heavy OC. You guess you don't do that all the time.

    In games, the video card protects itself from being very hot.

    how about when I already upgrade to 4670k OC to ~ 4.5ghz will 550W still be good?
