Would this psu be enough? 4790k, 2HDD, some additional fans, no OC

On the box of my Evga FTW 980ti says a minimum of 600w PSU or better. So with a good PSU and no overclocking you might just get away, but i would probably to up to 650w Seasonic or equiv to be safe.

would definitely up the psu in the future. but do you think this particular 550w psu will be safely enough for the time being?

To be honest, there are others out there with 500-550w Seasonic psu with an i7and 980ti, so im pretty confident you should be fine unless you try to overclock or add more parts than normal.
