Confirm that this is a good power supply pick

I have replaced a power supply before, but never chosen one for an upgrade.

I have an HP computer, link below for all the info.

My Computer

I will am looking for a power supply that will allow me to upgrade the GPU up to a 550 or 560ti. From what I can tell, I will need 2 6 pin connectors to power this, and a 500w power supply should cover the upgrade, plus any upgrades to the memory down the road.

Looking on Newegg, I found this, and think it looks like a good choice.

My Pick

Can anyone confirm for me that this has all of the connectors I need? Anyone have a better suggestion for the same price range, somewhere close to or lower than $60.

Thanks for the help,

The corsair 500w has the connectors you'll need for the gpu you selected. Antec is also good, but may cost more right now. Rebates vary daily.

Thanks for the replies. I'm a little concerned with the whine people complain about with the power supply, but may give it a shot for the price it is right now.

Coil whine can happen with any PSU. I don't think it's a common thing.
