In this instance, it should be fine. The GTX 770 is a 230W card maxed out. That relates to a bit over 19A on the +12V rail. Your other big amp draw is the processor. But it is only 84W (7A). So it should be fine. It's a good thing you bought a quality PSU, though. It has a nice 44A single +12V rail.
