As MalakiArtook said, you should get something stronger.

This would be good for the FX 8350: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1550sxxb...

This has Haswell support so this would be better for the i5-4670k (the first one would work too, but it doesn't have the Haswell power saving function): http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-xfxts550w

It would probably power it OK but does not leave much headroom. I would personally go with at least 600w. You don't specify any additional devices - DVD, HDD which all add to the load especially if you have a few you want to add. If you plan to overclock should also be considered.
