Your power supply may work. But I would go with a 550 watt to 650 watt psu to be on the safe side from looking at your specs.

the video card plus a SSD would do nicely

a SESONIC X650 would work splendid

I just got a 7850 OC edition which i'm using with a antec truepower new 550w psu and it's running without issue so far. Haven't stress tested it or benchmarked it yet but i've demoed a few games and can play everything maxed out at 1920x1080 and with eyefinity on two monitors. I think i read of someone using one with a 430w psu but it was a good quality one.
