I just ordered some new goodies for my computer, and im worried that my 500W power supply wont be able to keep up.

with the new stuff ordered my setup is this:

Gigabyte GA-P67A-D3-B3, Socket-1155

Kingston DDR3 HyperX 1600MHz 8GB

Intel Core™ i5 Quad Processor i5-2500

MSI GeForce GTX 560Ti 1GB PhysX

500GB samsung HDD

, theres one 120mm fan attached to case and thats about it.

so the big question is, can my - Antec EarthWatts EA500D power supply - keep up?
or do i need to get a new one.

(In that case any suggestions on what to buy, will be appreciated)

Aside from that 500W antec will work for your system.

I see. It's a great processor to overclock. The reason I said that was because you went with a p67 board. If you didn't intend to overclock you could have gotten away with the H67 board instead and saved some that way.
