Looking to rebuild my computer with a new cpu, gpu, psu, and motherboard. I am looking at the fx-8350 or the i5 3470 because those are the two in my price range.

Let me know which one you think is better and which motherboard i should get. not really looking to overclock.
going to be getting the gtx 660 as well.

Also would a 500 watt powersupply be enough?

With an i5 3470/GTX 660 I don't really see the point in spending the extra money on a Z77 since you won't be OC'ing and probably staying single GPU. I would just get a B75 for around $50-60 since you most likely won't be using the extra features of the Z77.
