Believe me, your psu is more than enough for that card. You might want to check out this discussion too:

Just make sure your PSU has at least 30 amps on the 12v rail. I checked it, I think you have 50 amps on that rail, but you might want to double check that.

A quality 600W PSU could easily handle this card, but I think manufacturers usually overestimate the PSU requirements, because not all 600W PSUs can handle that card, but pretty much all 750W PSUs can.
