Yes but that VGA cards has bad cooler and Cooler Master's extreme PSUs are HORRIBLE. For the same price, I suggest this combo instead:

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

Video Card: MSI Radeon HD 7850 2GB Video Card ($173.98 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: Corsair CX 500W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V Power Supply ($44.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $218.97
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

That is not a good PSU. It is also cutting it close. Grab a XFX 550W from NCIX. It's not much more expensive and it is much better.

@Madn3ss795: CX models are the low-end PSUs from Corsair. Not optimized for high performance systems.

CX Modular PSUs actually got better ratings than normal one. Anyway, in trade of modular cables for higher build quality, this PSU should do : http://pcpartpicker.com/part/silverstone-power-supply-s...

The CX models are not bad PSUs. They are great and reliable. However, they are just not optimized for high performance builds. Corsair built them primarily for basic systems while keeping price down because those builds do not require the performance or higher quality components.
