Hey I am going to be building a PC soon and have picked the parts but I don't know how much power it will need.
I will be using a i5 3570k and I want to overclock it to around 4.0-4.2ghz,Hyper evo 212 cooler, msi z77ma-g45, Corsair CMX8GX3M2B1600C9 XMS 8GB,HD 5770 and I need help with the PSU.
Would a 500w PSU help?
And will these parts work together? Thanks! :)

What GPU will you be using? This is the main determining factor when selecting a PSU.

Get a good quality 500-600w PSU. Corsair, Antec, XFX, Seasonic for brands.

Would a corsair 500w be enough for my system?

Yes. Even if you CF them, though that would push it.

CF = Crossfire. It's AMDs way of running two video cards together. You'd be pushing a 500W PSU with two 5770s, but it should be possible.
