Yes, a 550W PSU will be plenty, with room for overclocking.

 

A typical system is going to draw under 250W from the wall socket, and should not exceed 400W with the ENTIRE system overclocked.

If you are buying the power supply now, I would NOT recommend it.

It is a much older internal design PSU, and build quality and performance is not as good.

Use a PSU calculator to determine the wattage you need, such as this one: http://www.coolermaster.com/power-supply-calculator/

Then afterward, use the PSU teir list to find the best Teir 1/2 power supply that suits your needs: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/631048-psu-tier-list-updated/

i7-7700k | GTX 1080 Ti | 32GB 3100MHz | Prime Z270-AR

Okay, if it's an existing power supply, then you should be okay.

How old is that power supply -- according to CoolerMaster, it is already discontinued.

If it is more then ~5 years old, I would considering having it replaced in the future.

Calculators give you an OVERESTIMATED value.

Reviews show, a full typical system, with a single GTX 1060, draws less than 300W in total.
