Nvidia GTX 770 - Could it run on this power supply?

Hey, getting a new GPU soon and was going to get the GTX 760, but I found a GTX 770 for not much higher a price. Question now is would it run on my current system?

I've used the eXtreme Power Supply Calculator to calculate my wattage and I should have enough, now it's down to the connectors/ parts of the PSU I have no idea about whatsoever. Here is my current PSU:

And here is the 770 I plan on buying:

  1. It might work, but you should really get a 600W psu. And a quality one
  2. 500w would be pushing it, it would depend on the rest of your system.
  3. AMD FX 8350 4 Ghz
    Corsair Vengeance DDR3 RAM 2x4GB 1600 mhz
    ASUS Sabretooth 990FX R2.0 Motherboard
    Corsair H100 water cooling kit
    x1 200mm fan
    x1 120mm fan (Not counting the two on the H100)
  4. If it was a solid 500w PSU you might get away with it but that B500 is closer to a 400w PSU rather than a 500w PSU. So I wouldn't recommend running a gtx 770 with it.
  5. So what upgrades would you recommend then, and if possible can you provide Scan links (I buy all my stuff from them)?

    I play at 1920x1080p resolution, mostly games such as WoW and some of the more recent games such as AC4 and Arkham Origins. I just want smooth 50+ FPS at a high graphics setting, in desperate need of an upgrade from my terrible GTX 650. :( Possible upgrade to a Crossfire or SLI setup available around June.
  6. Budget is probably about £220.

    If you can't get the gtx 760. Get the 550w XFX and a R9-270x.

    Its slower than the 760, but its still a decent card.
