It should be fine for low-mid tier games. High end games like Metro 2033 or Crysis you'll definitely have to turn a few things down though the 7770 is a pretty good GPU.

.. To be completely honest you did over pay by quite a bit.

I built the same spec PC on newegg to compare, the total was about 580 though the PSU was of course different since you didn't specify exactly which model.

680 with Windows 7.

So I should probably be able to run most modern games on high settings on at least 1600x900 res?

Yes, the 7770 should run everything on high at that resolution. Anything higher and you'll more than likely have to turn down a thing or two though.
