600W Enough?

Hello!

Just looking for the go-ahead on this. I've got the following build:

CPU: i5-2500k
Cooler : Hyper 212 Evo
Mobo: Extreme3 Gen3
GPU: MSI Power Edition 7850
RAM: 2 sticks DDR3-1600
PSU: PC Power and Cooling Silencer MK III 600W

I'll also have a couple 120mm fans and a 140mm fan.

Will the PSU be enough? I'm concerned 'cause I switched GPUs recently to the Power Edition which seems to use more power than anticipated. eXtreme PSU Lite says I'm okay... am I? 600W seems to be close.

No Crossfire in the future, guys!

Thanks!

    That is a top quality psu, and is more than enough.
    Here are the basic 7850 requirements:
