Should I upgrade my power supply?

I bought my power supply first a while back because it was on a ridiculous sale. Since then I have beefed up my build quite a bit and need to know if I'm running any risks with the current power supply. I have a 550 Watt and this build estimates about 428 Watts.

Well you're cutting it close with the amperage, and stressing the PSU in the process, so I would say if you have the cash go ahead and upgrade, but it's not immediate. I'm not an expert on PSUs though, so everything I say should be taken with a grain of salt.
