As long as you are not planning to crossfire, you'll be fine. If you are planning any upgrades down the road, you might want to look at a 650w unit.

It should draw around 350w as you described . So yes you are fine. As markwp said if you plan on any upgrades or Crossfire you might want to go with a 750w.
