With a 500W PSU & 1 x PCIe x16 that I see on the mobo, yes, it is all compatible.

what i read on this sticker is more like max output 360w and 12v rail 20amps...i would say no, this psu will not run a gaphics card like a r9 270x for a prolonged period of time...it will either blow up in no time or shut down randomly when playing demanding games...sorry you need a psu upgrade as well..
