  1. A good 500w is more than enough. The seasonic you picked is perfect.

    Yes even a quality 450w should work. Nvidia keeps make their GPU's with lower power requirements. If you plan on ever going SLI tho you should get a 750w.

    The power supply you chose should be fine. PC Part picker shows you how much you need in the top right corner. For your system the minimal wattage would be 336, but is recommended that you get a power supply w/ at least 100-200w more than required to be safe. If you go overboard however you may be spending a lot for the electrical bills.
