Corsair CXM 430w PSU enough for this budget gaming system?

Hello, I am building a new budget gaming MATX PC and I was wondering if the Corsair CX Modular 430w PSU would be enough to power my rig?

Here is the build:

AMD A10 5800K Black Edition CPU 3.8Ghz *Overclocked to 4.4Ghz*
Xilence M303 CPU Cooler Red with Fan 92 mm
MSI A55M-E33 AMD FM2+ A55 Micro-ATX Motherboard
Corsair CML8GX3M2A1600C9 Vengeance Low Profile 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 @1600 Mhz
Western Digital Scorpio Black 250 GB SATA II HDD 7200 RPM
MSI V302 Radeon R7 250 OC 1GB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card
LG CH12NS30.AUAU10B SATA Blu-ray/DVDRW Optical Drive
Sharkoon VS3-S MATX Case With 2x120mm case fans and 1x92mm case fan
*Corsair CXM 430w PSU*

NOTE that I hope to be able to enable dual/crossfire mode with the A10's built in HD7660D to gain better performance in games.

Also if anybody could let me know what kind of FPS I would be hoping to get from this system for newer games like Battlefield 4, Watchdogs, Assasins Creed Black Flag etc that would be a bonus, thanks.

    Mainly down to the price and my budget as of now...I had picked up the WD Scorpio Black on Ebay for around £16 and as my motherboard is more supportive of SATA II, the Scorpio seemed to be a pretty good option to me. I may however pick up a good SDD in the future as my case has more than enough room for one.
