Depends on the power supply. If it is a good model from a brand like Corsair, Seasonic, XFX, then you should be OK with a 500W supply. Just make sure to not get a PSU with crappy amperage on the +12V rail (ideally it should have at least 35 A on it).

For reference, R9 270X has a TDP of 180W while the i5-4430 has a TDP of 84 W, so that is 264 W total.
