Looks good, but that GPU only needs a 500W ModXStream.

Sometimes it doesn't hurt to have a little headroom. You might want a new video card someday saving a few bucks now could cost you 5 times that down the line and a lot of headache. Power supply issues are terrible because they are hard to track down. Get the right PSU now and you will probably be able to use it in your next build.
