More than enough
The NeoEco 520 would be more than enough, it isn't modular but is a better quality psu and generally less expensive

Do you have any plans on getting another video card later on down the road for SLI? That would be the only reason to consider a higher watts psu.
The Neo Eco doesn't come with a power cord but the BP 550W Plus does.
