Yes it will work, but if you plan on overclocking the CPU, overclocking that GPU (great GPU for overclocking), and adding case fans, you may want to bump up to a 650. Nothing wrong with Antec.

Or a 550W unit with more 12V capacity as the BP550 Plus only has 384W combined.

No such thing as an AX 550.

+1 Silv! Much more precise.

Here's a great link that I like to use. There are plenty others that aren't branded, but yeah, I'm a Corsair fanboi :) .

Only thing I don't like is they don't have a 560Ti listed, which baffles me given how popular that GPU is....so I plug in the 580 just to be conservative.

Remember, PSUs have an efficiency curve. So you don't want to be pushing the limits of your PSU....less efficient, shorter life, louder fans.

Saw this in my email just a couple of minutes ago
$35 after promo code and rebate, not a bad deal :) 
Got a couple of the 520 watt units about 6 weeks ago, they were $40 after promo, no rebate :(

I've used the Neo 520W in several builds. A well made PSU for the price. The 620W is now available for the price I was paying for the 520W. Good choice for the $$.
