That's an awesome build for 550 bucks, but you are gonna need a bigger PSU.

Get a 970 board for around the same price. If you are getting a HD7950, the CX430 could come up short. Bump upto atleast 500W. If you are tight on funds, I'd recommend getting 4GB now and another 4GB whenever you have cash.

Your probably ok with the power supply but it wont hold up for long better to go with at least a 500 watt corsair I only have a raidmax 530 and I am running a 7950 a 2 terrabyte drive 1 terrbyte drive a 120 ssd and 2 x 24 dvd burners and all is well no need to jump to 600 to 700 watts of power to cover this look for a deal with corsair they have good drives and good prices if you like to future proof your system just ask if its about a power supply good build .... have fun
