more then enough, you won't break 200w with that set up.

The other thing to keep in mind is that you want some headroom in wattage. Cheaper PSU's can wind up producing a lot fewer watts than they say (I had a 700W PSU that burned out after less than a year, when the max power load for my system was around 625W). The better the PSU, the less headroom you need.
