Is this PSU Sufficient for Powering my Budget Gaming Build?

Hello,

I've run multiple "PSU Calculators," but have received conflicting responses. Can any veteran tell me if this PSU is sufficient to power my system? I inquired about this recently, but I modified a few specs and the old thread is locked. Thanks.
