My System Specs

Default

I am a little leery of that psu you are looking at. One is it is only 65% efficient at full load so its a power pig and produces a lot of excess waste heat. Second it is 500w maximum, not a continuous 500w. So when you get that video card you will definitely have to upgrade this anyways. Third, if it doesn't give you clean power then it could kill other parts on you.

Not trying to discourage you, just trying to save you trouble later on. Maybe try and squeeze a few extra dollars for this one Newegg.com - Antec NEO ECO 520C 520W Continuous Power ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply or maybe Newegg.com - CORSAIR Builder Series CX500 V2 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply
