So I have heard that 580 is power hungry. And of I am under powered then please suggest me any other graphics card as I don't want to change my PSU anytime soon.

do upgrade your PSU. My friend got his Rx 580 toasted up due to the PSU(same VS550). From india bro. It is really bad psu even if you take 750w, it will die for sure. Sell you current psu or keep it as backup and go fo CX series .
All below prices are in INR. You can convert from google to any other currency. Anything from here is a boon for your system.

Corsair CX550 80 Plus bronze ===4500
Cooler master MASTERWATT 550 80 Plus bronze ====4800
Antec earthwatt 80 Plus gold pro 550 == 5800
Antec EA550G PRO 80 Plus Gold ===5900
Cooler master MWE 80 Plus GOLD 550 ===6000





Cooler master MASTERWATT 650 80 Plus bronze ====6000
Antec earthwatt 80 PLUS gold pro 650 == 6720
Cooler master MWE 80 PLUS GOLD 650 ====7200
Corsair TX650M — 650 Watt 80 Plus Gold ==7400
Corsair RM650x 80 PLUS Gold Fully Modular ==9000

550w itself in terms of wattage is enough for an RX 580.

But as previously stated, that PSU is very low quality which simply means that worst case scenario it dies when put under load at some point and ends up taking other hardware with it.

So do try to upgrade the PSU to something a bit higher quality as soon as possible

to be honest, just using that PSU with your current hardware is a risk every time you boot up your machine.

so it's up to you if you want to buy the card now and take the gamble that it'll hold out long enough for you to save up and get a better PSU, or to get a better PSU and then wait and save up the amount you spent on the new PSU to then be able to get the GPU.

Do not use the CX nor the VS series, both are bad.
CX already killed a graphic card of mine, and i never trusted corsair after that.
I would suggest a 650 G2 supernova EVGA better than all of that with 7 year warranty instead.
And a budget one is a 1060 or 1660TI.
