The most common mistake is people buying power supplies with more wattage than they need.  Unless you're running more than 1 gpu, 550 is plenty.

Yes (objection), this is known as the G1, which was made by a different sub manufacturer than the G2. It's ranked as a tier 5, which means its very poor quality

I would highly recommend you to used the G2 that I linked.

Don't know why you "need" gold efficiency ratings but the aforementioned EVGA G2/G3/GS/GQ should do nicely. 550W is plenty.

EVGAs supernova g2 or g3 line is pretty good and not that expensive
