Is 400W Silverstone Strider Essential good enough for this pc?

Intel Core i5 2500K

MSI P67S-C43
HDD SATA II 500 GB SAMSUNG SpinPoint F3
DDR3 1333MHz 4GB Kingmax
SONY Optiarc AD-5260S

You only have 25A on a single 12v rail. You need to find something in the 650w range I would say. 750 would be even better to give you some head room in the future for upgrades.

combined +12V
300W/25A
^
That has me a little worried.

Not so sure about hequality of the PSU, but a good quality 400w should work just fine for a single card rig. If you plan on going SLI in future then get a 650w PSU.

Whats your budget?

I have this PSU overclocked and folding 24/7. Highly recommendable. It's on sale too!

Well since you have a K-series chip, you'll be oc'ing, so definitely go for a higher wattage PSU.

If you overclock the i5-2500k and GTX 560 Ti, you can exceed 300W on +12V (under an unrealistic stress test load, but still).

400W is maybe okay as long as it's like Antec High Current Gamer, Antec Neo Eco, Corsair CX400, OCZ StealthXStream (1 or 2), etc. that have higher +12V capacity. Above 520W would be considered way overkill for that setup.

In Europe, the cheapest decent options that are usually available would generally be the Corsair CX430 V2 or XFX Core Pro 450W. The XFX is preferred even if it's 5 euros more or so.

400W will be fine!
