Unless its a corsair 550 watt, I wouldnt think so. I would go for a nice 750 watt corsair or better.

You might run into a problem running with a 500W PSU (or at least on the edge). I would buy a 650W+, however if you already have a 500W it would not hurt to try.

The i7 has a smaller die then the Q6, the RAM requires less volts and the GTX 260 216 (with a 65nm die) has been optimized to requires less power, however according to this review minimum is a brand name 550W.

Depends the Corsair 550w or a higher end BFG 550w or equivilant should do but a lower quality PSU with low amperage would nor work. Do you have a model number or something you could tell us?

If it's a quality 500W, yes.

If you already have one, then you should give us the brand, and specs.
If you need one,
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817703016
35A on +12v rail should be enough for the GPU.

EDIT: you posted as I was.
In simple words, NO. that PSU is not going to cut it.
