The PSU is fine for those components you've listed. Bigger PSU's are needed with more power hungry video cards mainly, and heavy overclocking also pushes power use up a lot. That GTX 750 Ti is very power efficient (55 watt max draw). I don't think 16Gb is needed for the moment (not for games that I know of) and perhaps some tweaks can be made around that. What sort of things are you playing and at what resolutions?
Are you sure you're not overpaying anywhere? I put in a similar system here and it comes out at a lot less - http://pcpartpicker.com/p/LXB3NG
Don't forget your operating system. And I assume you have a screen etc. already?
Anyway what could you do. Here's an example with an FX-8320 8 core processor and R9-280 graphics card - http://pcpartpicker.com/p/tXqn99

I'm with your friends. I'd go at least 500w, just for some over head. According to nVidia you need at least 300w. The power supply is not a place to save money.
I'm with jonuk76 that you probably don't need 16GB of RAM, but it will future proof your build.
