Not a fan of the Rocketfish (BestBuy house brand).
The fact that the PSU is being "Sold by Liquidation Team" is another red flag to me.
And that it might be a Huntkey built PSU is also of real concern.

You are right to look for a quality psu.

My short list of quality brands would include Seasonic, PC P&C, Antec, XFX, and Corsair.
You can safely buy from any of them.

I think your gpu only needs one 6 pin power connector and 24a.

For $25 after rebate, the Corsair CX430 is a great deal. I have used them before, and they work well.

A good stronger unit would be the Antec earthwatts green 500w unit at $50 after rebate:
