I went out and bought a BFG Tech GS 550 Watt ATX Power Supply so that I can upgrades in the future cause my system was experiencing power issues. I want to know if it is safe to plug it in. 550 Watts might be too much for my system to handle. Would a high wattage power supply burn out my motherboard.

It will only draw what it needs.

HOWEVER, i would advise reading the power supply link in my signature. BFG is not one of our supported power unit brands.
