Like Phaedrus stated, a REAL 430 watt PSU would easily power that system. I I'm running a faster system than yours which would require more power than yours off of an Antec EarthWatts 430 with ease. That Antec is built by Seasonic, is quite well built, and can actually put out the full 430 watts and then some and still be in spec unlike that barely 300 watt psu with a 500 watt label you have.
