I would like to purchase a computer that can handle most games at decent settings and can also be used for work purposes. I am not interested in building a computer from scratch though, but I will consider swapping out parts if need be.
Processor: Intel® Core® i5 2500K Processor Motherboard: Asus P8Z68-V LE Motherboard Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 6770 1GB Graphics Card Memory: G.Skill 2x4GB DDR3 1600MHz Memory Hard Drive: 500GB 7200RPM SATA Optical Drive 22x DVD+/-RW Chassis: Velocity IW-C583T Mid Tower Power Supply: Power Man 500W Power Supply (3x18A on 12V)
Could anyone please advice whether this power supply is sufficient for my purposes?
Thanks in advance.

a 500 watt PSU is fine. however that seems to be a no name manufacturer and unknown quality.
a quick check: (3x18A on 12V) means total of 54 amps (54*12) a output of 648 WATTS?!?!? b*llsh*t. it might be fine for the 300 watts you would draw now but i would not trust it 1 watt more.
Build your own! They kind of are overcharging you for the parts they give you!
