[Question] Is Silverstone SFX-L 500 W Gold enough for an AMD R9 390? (Skylake mITX build)

Greetings,

After searching and reading different opinions, I wanted to ask here if my current power supply (Silverstone SFX-L 500 W Gold) would be enough for an AMD R9 390? (Gigabyte Radeon R9 390 Gaming G1)

I would use a I5-6600 (Non K), 16gb DDR3L, 500GB SSD Samsung 850 (Planing on adding a 3 Tb HDD), Cryorig C7 cooler, Noctua 14mm industrial fan and an Asus H170I Motherboard.

I am not planning on OC the GPU.

Would I be on the safe side?

I read that the power supply delivers up to 40A on the 12V which I think is good.

I am aware that a 970 would suit better from a power point of view but due to personal preferences, I would like to go for the R9 if possible.

Thanks in advance!
