The TX650 will be more than enough, your build uses 393 watts with everything stressed out to 100% and capacitor aging to 10% (which is still new) though this does not include your DVD-Drive (20-30 watts at peak) and your hard drive or SSD (10-15 watts).

If you are wondering how I found your wattage I used a power supply calculator. Link is below if you are interested.
