Default Not enough power?

I have a 600Watt PSU with 78% efficiency
PSU output is 468 Watts
Peak usage of CPU 248 Watts
Peak Usage of GPU 228 Watts
Thats already 476 Watts!

Do I not have enough power? I got the peak usage numbers from guru of 3d and a few other reputable sites

WTF am I missing something!!!!

Intel i5 4640 - XFX R9 280
Corsair Vengeance 8GB - Samsung 850 EVO 250GB Seasonic 620W PSU

600w is fine for your setup.
