The 500W requirement takes into account other standard components. So if you're overclocking your CPU really high, maybe upgrade to 600W, but for now I'm sure you're safe with 530W.

Cpu needs 100 watts and gpu needs about 150 watts, thats 250 watts by themselves, not including RAM,HDD,Mobo,Fans,LED and such
