Sapphire R9 270X Vapor-X +Antec VP500PC bad choise ?

Hi, I have a PSU Antec VP500PC here are the specification https://shop.strato.com/WebRoot/StoreFR/Shops/63047321/MediaGallery/Antec/VP500PC.pdf

What I want to know if the amperage is enough for Sapphire R9 270x Vapor-X ? This PSU has only one 6pin Mollex,what I should do buy and MSI R9 270 Gaming Twin frozr and overclock it or stick with the Vapor X .

My budget is 350Euro and with that money I want to buy :
Cooler Master Hyper TX3 EVO CPU Cooler
Corsair Vengeance PC3-12800 DDR3 1600 4GB CL9
Kingston SSDNow V300 120GB
Sapphire R9 270X Vapor-X 2GB GDDR5
Wireless Gaming Receiver for Windows

Should I sacrifice the SSD and buy a new PSU or buy MSI R9 270 Gaming Twin frozr and overclock it the memory clock to 1500mhz and the GPU clock to 1130 and stick with this PSU ?

Sorry for my english .

    keep with the R9 270X and get a better PSU (XFX Pro 550W is a very decent PSU at low price)

    Then I will buy R9 270x Toxic and Corsair CX500M 500W Builder Series 80 Plus Bronze or Corsair CX600 V2 600W Builder Series 80 Plus Bronze and I will sacrifice the SSD I will buy one later this year .
