Well 140W for the cpu 2x 125 give me 390 total this is with components at max load but it is more like a max TDP that it will never hit.
A 500W psu is more than is needed not that it matters if you have a high eff one.
I run a 7850 and a i7 3820QM and multiple peripherals of a 192W psu yet that calculator reports 300W min (with the cpu replaced by a low power haswell of 45W which is the same TDP as my proc if I'm not mistaken).

Unless that PSU has a P in the model name then hell no

In fact its one of the worst PSU´s money can buy

Editi turns out there are two model with same name one by CWT and the old one by HEC

The HEC is the crappy one
