I would go a little higher. Your cpu at stock is 130 watts so if you overclock you might get to about 200 watts. Your kinda close with a 200w card and other stuff too. Just my opinion not facts i would go with a 650w.

Unless you plan on going multi GPU, 500w should do just fine mate thumb.gif

A better question is what PSU is it you plan on using? If it's a quality unit such as Corsair, Antec, Seasonic, etc. you should be fine. If it's a piece of trash like Logisys you'll be in for a lot of trouble.

Boom, fizzle, tears.

I'm surprised nobody has asked the most important question:

What 500W is it?

There is a huge difference between a quality 500W unit (e.g. Seasonic) and a bargain basement "500W."

If you have a good 500W PSU, then you're fine with that setup. With a crappy "500W," you're not.

Should be alright provided your not going to be overclocking a lot.
The 560ti and Bulldozer chip can pull a lot of power when they are being overclocked. But if your want to know for sure pick up a kill-a-watt or some other power metering device.
Then youll know for sure if your getting to your PSU limit.
