Do i need a better PSU

I already have everything ,but the hard drive, and am eager to put it together. However this being my first build, i had no clue as to what wattage was or anything. As i opened my graphics card i noticed it said recommended wattage was 500, my psu is 450. my overall wattage for the pc is around 330 (as you will see in my parts list). Should i upgrade to a 600, or will it be alright with the 450?

I'm a seasonic fan, but that PSU at that price is not a good deal.

I'd look at this EVGA 550 G2, built by superflower for $65 after rebate.

Any single GTX 10x0 graphics card should be fine with this.
