It says I'm currently sitting at 413w for a 500w power supply, I'm not sure if I should get another one or stick with what I have picked out. I don't plan on adding more stuff to my rig then what I have in the foreseeable future, if that would change anything.

500 will be plenty for stock clocks, if you plan on pushing your parts hard though you might want a bit more just for ease of mind. I've never seen system loads go above 390-ish for a 770 build at stock.
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there
