Could this PSU work for this rig?

I'm upgrading my CPU and GPU to:

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition
http://CPU

GPU: ASUS GTX 660
http://GPU

I was originally planning on getting a 600W Corsair PSU, but newegg has the 500 on sale and was wondering if 500 would be enough to power my CM1730-03 stock with these two upgrades. I'm assuming if the 600 was enough, the 500 should be too?

    Hi - The Corsair 500w unit is more than sufficient for your system
    running a gtx660.
  2. Yes, that power supply should be fine.
  3. Sweet guys, thanks for the quick replies! You have saved me about 50 bucks! :D
  4. No problem. Could you give them to the people who answered your question, so we can split them? I'd love $25.
