Smile Newbie needing help on first project

Hello,

I have a switch in my kitchen runnnig on a 15 amp breaker. I bought 2 light fixtures, with 50 watts max each that I plan on installing and a 5 amp dimmer to control both. Here are the exact items.

Lights:
Shop Portfolio 3-Light Brushed Steel Flush Mount Fixed Track Light Kit at Lowes.com

Shop Portfolio 6-Light Brushed Nickel Fixed Track Light Kit at Lowes.com

Dimmer:
Shop Lutron Diva 5-Amp White Preset Dimmer at Lowes.com



My question is: is this dimmer right? I am not sure how to make sure. I also saw the same dimmer at Lowes but it is 1-1/4 amps. Any help is appreciated!

You have 450W total load and the dimmer is good for 5A or 600VA. You're good to go.
