Can the gtx 770 be powered by a 500w Cooler Master Elite 500w PSU?

Hello, I have been looking at an upgrade for my current GPU, the XFX 6850. I've found the Asus GTX 770, and everything seems fine apart from the power supply. I'm not sure whether it has enough connectors for this graphics card, or if it will be bale to provide enough power.

Current specs:

i5 3570k (No overclock and don't plan to)
8gb RAM

    No, that PSU won't do it. 500w is enough, but that PSU only has 20a on the +12v rail available. You want at least 28-30 or so for the 770.
  2. Here's one for about the same price that will work beautifully :)
