More than enough power for your system and future card going by the typical max of 250w for a flag ship card by either camp.

I wouldn't quote an r9 290x as 250w max, considering 7970's draw and that 290x has 2.8k cores vs 2k of 7970/280x, it could pull quite a bit with a little OC

nonetheless should be good, 600w is a looot of power. I'd be more concerned for quality of the unit etc look up some reviews see if it holds up well in testing, not that there would be any expected problems
