Help! R280 Power Consumption

Hi,

I'm a complete noobie building my first system, so I thought I'd check here about power before
I make a mistake.

Basically wondering how much power is needed for system roughly looking like:
Some new i5
R280
1x 1Tb Hard drive
1x SSD

And everything else just standard.

I'm considering this: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/500w-corsair-cxm-builder-series-hybrid-modular-80-plus-bronze-1x120mm-atx-psu

Would you guys give this the go-ahead?

Cheers! :)

    Is £50 your budget? Can you go higher?
    I wouldn't really use a CX 500 with a R280.
    See if you can get this unit:

    Suztera's suggestion is also great, and it will offer more options for future GPU/CPU upgrades, so it pretty much depends on how much you're willing to spend.
