According to the Corsair calculator yes but please check for yourself so that you can see the specific details, not all PSUs are of as good a quality as the Antec, Corsair and Seasonic brand and some I wouldn`t trust as a door stop.
Here is a guide to PSUs you can trust and PSUs to avoid http://www.10stripe....d/psu/brand.php
Give yourself a bit of headroom for future upgrades such as additional drives, couple of suggestions below; http://www.newegg.co...&name=$50 - $75 and http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817371035 ensure that whatever you purchase has an output efficiency of at least 80% like the ones at the links.
