Default Is my PSU good enough?

I have a XFX 7950gt agp and Nvidia recommends a 400W power supply with 12v=20amp.

I have a Thermaltake 550W dual rail (12v1=14, 12v2=15). Will it be good enough to run my video card?

No, I already have the PSU, I bought it for around 90 bucks at a local store a while ago. I bought the card and am just wondering if this PSU will work with the card or if I need to upgrade my PSU.

It should be alright I guess. ThermalTake's stuff isn't exactly the greatest though.
