  1. It should be, but its close. I would get a bigger PSU to be safe, plus newer cards require more power so you might be limiting your upgrade options in the future.
  2. I'd get a new psu especially if i intended to overclock-your cpu is quite powerhungry.
  3. No overclocking, and this is the psu i have, cant afford new one atm.
  4. You should be fine for the time being, but change it when you can, yours is not a great PSU.

    Silverstone Strider Plus ST50F-P 500W will be enough for your system. Your psu provides current of 34A @+12V rail and your gpu won't use more than 22A and max tdp for your gpu is 250watts. Nothing to be worried, you are all good :)
