    It’s close, but I think it’ll work.
    But I see you’re getting the K series CPU, so you want to overclock it? If so, get like a 650 or something.

    Barely, I would not recommend it. It is a dual rail +12V design, and that requires you to do the load balancing on both rails, as to not overload any one rail.
    For a higher end system with higher end video, like yours, do not skimp on the PSU. Get at least a 600-700W PSU, one preferable with a single rail +12V design. A good quality, name brand PSU with 550W single rail +12V would be ok as well.
