Is 600W enough?

Hi everyone at Tomshardware!

I am new to this website, but have used it a few times for information. I have a question about my PSU with my custom build. My PSU is a Corsair Builder 600w 80 Plus Bronze ATX12V power supply. I am using an Intel i5 3570k at 3.4GHz, a Gigabyte Radeon HD 7970 with 3GB, Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600 8GB memory, Seagate Barricuda 1TB HDD, and an MSI Z77a-G43 motherboard. I have not built this configuration yet, but I just want to check and see if 600W is enough to power it.

Thanks!
