PSU for GPU question.

I want to assume I may need to buy a new PSU. But I will if your answers are what I am looking for.

The GPU I want requires 450 Watt Power Supply (with 24A on the +12V Rail)

I have a 500 watt with 17a x2 on the +12v Rail. Would I be able to run said GPU wide open if the game/task required max load?

Or should I just buy an upgraded PSU?

Thank you!

If it requires 450W, you'll be of course good with 500W one.

GTX 460 will work fine with 500W PSU.

Sounds like an original EA500, if that's the case there's nothing to worry about.
