CX PSU's are a bit yikes. Go for a higher wattage PSU. EVGA seems to do pretty well
Please avoid spreading misinformation. If you have no idea what you're talking about, it's often best not to.
The 2017 CX is quite decent. LLC resonant primary, DC-DC and a rifle bearing fan. Unlike a lot of EVGA's stuff, which often uses sleeve bearing fans and group regulation on the low-mid range.

input your specs into pcpartpicker to estimate wattage
That's a great way to just waste time. PCPP's calculator overestimates, and when a part doesn't have a number for the power draw, it assumes it's 0W. Particularly the motherboard and RAM power draw is exaggurated.

and was wondering if it'd work safely
It's more than fine. Just make sure the GPU only needs a single PCI-e 8 pin to work. Here's the power draw of the XFX Fatboy. The power draw goes up to about 230W, so accounting for the rest of the system, expect around 300W draw from the PSU under a gaming load.
