It can't do 500W. More like 400W. Barely enough for the rig you're proposing, and it will be loud and inefficient.

You could have gotten like a Corsair CX430v2 for cheaper that would be more reliable, quieter, and more efficient, and deliver the same usable power.

It's not ideal, but it should work, just don't plan on OC'ing anything. I mean anything, don't do it.

(i can't believe I just told somebody not to OC on OCN).

rofl, underclock it to stock speeds/lower the voltage, or flash the non OC bios to it. j/k, I'd just give it a go, most of the 560ti cards have a minimum 500w PSU requirement, and I'm pretty sure they refer to max wattage. IIRC the stock 560ti TDP is around 170W, so as long as your card isn't pulling much more than that you should still be OK. You are cutting it close though.

Always try to buy a PSU w/ a continuous power rating, and high efficiency, you will thank yourself later, when you don't need to buy multiple PSU's for one PC.
