Here are my current pc specs.

Going to make the switch from Amd to Intel, ordered an Asus Z170 Pro Gaming mobo with the i5 6600K and 8gb of kingston hyperx ddr4 memory.
My current PSU is the Corsair VS 550w, less than a year old.
I know it's not very good but is it enough to run these specs for a while untill I can afford a better one?
Also please do recommend me a good PSU preferably under 100€ :D

I agree with the other 2, and buying a "better" not "bigger" psu is a wonderful gift for your rig.

550w is enough for overclocking the 6600k right?

Intel CPUs draw much less juice than their AMD counterparts. Typically, your GPU will draw more power than your CPU unless the former is very low end.
