i just did some guess and check with the calc...pretty much any processor i threw at it along with 2 hdd's, 2 gpus', 2 opticals, and 4 gb ram (pretty much max any normal person would run i guess you could say) was well under 600w, so the one you ordered should be just fine ;-)

LOL Glad you got a laugh out of that.
