GTX 780 on a 600w PSU

According to Extreme Power Supply Calculator the recommended wattage for my system with a GTX 780 is 519 Watts. I currently have an FSP 600W PSU and was under the impression that this was too low to power a 780. Is this an error? My power parameters were:

I5 4670K (Non OCed) GTX 780 1 7200 RPM HDD 1 SSD 1 Optical drive 1 PCI card 1 Fan controller 4 80mm Fans 3 USB devices 100% peak load

It should be fine unless you do any serious overclocking.

Yeah 600 would be fine.

It'll be fine even if you overclock.
