Yeah that will work fine! You could probably even run a second card with that PSU!

+1 to RickyT; Corsair's PSUs are good enough that yours could handle a second card. I have my GTX 460s in SLI and OCed on a 650W Antec, so you have more than enough headroom.

If you want a fairly accurate approximation on how much power you're using, try out this PSU Calculator:
