I am attempting my first PC build and i am a little unsure about my rigs power consumption.
I currently have chosen a Corsair CX-430 Modular 80+ Bronze PSU.
Is this a sufficient PSU, if not how much would suit plus a little power to spare in case of upgrade?

My intended rig:
ASRock B75M-DGS Motherboard
Corsair 4GB (1x4GB) DDR3
Samsung SATA DVDRW Drive OEM
Intel Core i3 3220
Powercolor Radeon HD7770 GHz Edition 1GB
CoolerMaster Elite 344 USB 3.0 Silver Case
Western Digital WD Blue 500GB

Tips & Advice Welcomed!!

Yes, it's suffice, it depends on the card, but it will do for a 7850 or 660 gtx, and any i5 or i7 cpus.

Thank you, most people have told me that my current PSU is suffice but according to the website which i am purchasing my build off, it says the GPU requires minimum 450w.

The 7770 needs 19A, that psu has 32A on its single +12V rail, you're fine.
