500W is without a doubt enough. It seems to be the 'in' thing to over estimate how much power computers need. 2 HD4980s and an i7 @ 4.4GHz consumes less than 400W. Put a kill-a-watt on your outlets that your PC is attached and I bet you'll be pleasantly surprise. Ok 500W may be pushing it a bit. But 550W would be enough
