Will my current PSU suffice?

Hello all. I'm not entirely sure if this is in the correct section (and I apologize if it's not...) but I'm looking to upgrade my GPU. I went to pcpartpicker and it said it will work. However, I'm not 100% sure that it's completely up to date on the compatibility due to the recent release of the card.

I have the CORSAIR Builder Series CX500 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE.

My current card is the MSI Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB.

The card I'm planning to go to is the EVGA GeForce GTX 760 4GB.

Will this still be fine in the long run? If more info -- such as Mobo, RAM and HDD -- is necessary I can provide it.

Thank you in advance!

Short Answer, Yes. Long Answer, In terms of wattage this power supply is the minimum, so if you want to do larger upgrades in the future I might recommend a 600W PSU. But if you don't, This will be just fine.

Hope this helped :)

Perfect!

I'll be upgrading the PSU in a few paychecks. This one is my "Whatever you want to spend it on" Paycheck. So. I wanted to upgrade.

It helped quite a bit, thank you very much!
