^ That is a good one...
Other options,
Antec EA 500/ Corsair 550/ Seasonic 500/550W/ Silverstone 500/550W

And there are 80+ and non 80+ certified 600W PSU from CM...
The Extreme series from CM are not 80+ certified...better to stay away from them...

Is enough, and is better if the PSU comes with PFC active.

It should be fine. Corsair HX620 is a great choice if you want to upgrade to a 80+ PSU, but the drawback is that the Corsair PSUs are very noisy.
Thermaltake ToughPower Grand is 80+ Gold and very quiet as other thermlatake PSUs, but don't expect it to be cheap.

The general rule of thumb is a high quality 500 to 550 watt power supply with sufficient current (amps) on the 12 volt rail(s) can easily power a system with any single video card made.

Corsair, PC Power & Cooling, and Seasonsic are some of the brands that have a reputation for high quality power supplies that consistently earn high marks in technical reviews. They are reliable, stable, and come with a 5 year warranty. Lately we've been seeing a few other brands offering some high quality units.
