That's a little light.

Not only does your PC designer need that many Watts but then they have to find out how many Amperes per rail and then make sure there is sufficiently more to spare since the rated power is for a NEW power supply and not a year later.

Figure double what your calculators tell you if your PC designer can't total up the Amperes.
