Hello im upgrading my pc (some parts ) , and dont know if the psu i have will work with the upgrade , or i have to buy a new one .

Right now, i have :
DualCore Intel Pentium D 945, 3400 MHz (17 x 200)
Asus P5V-VM Ultra (2 PCI, 1 PCI-E x1, 1 PCI-E x16, 2 DDR2 DIMM, Audio, Video, LAN)
DIMM1: Advance Modules 512 MB DDR2-533 DDR2 SDRAM (5-4-4-12 @ 266 MHz) (4-4-4-12 @ 266 MHz) (3-3-3-9 @ 200 MHz)
Hard disk 160 gb IDE
Recorder DVD/CD
The case has a cooler in the side
Other stuff(mouse, keyboard,headphones, speakers, dont know if this is relevant)

I will buy :
i5 second generation(2300 or 2400 )
asus p8h67 m-lx or similar
4 gb ram 1333mhz
500 hard disk SATA2 or SATA3

I dont think to buy a dedicate gpu. I read that the Pentium D 945 and i5 have the same TPD .

Here are the numbers that are in the back of the psu :

The numbers don't make sense for the +12V rails. How do you get 370W (30A) from a +12V1@8A and +12V2@13A? Are you sure the +12V1 is 8A and not 18A?

Most likely because he was looking at the combined wattage output from them.

370 / 12 = 30.333

The OP never specified 30 Amps just the 370W for, I assume, the combined +12V rails. You'll never get 30 Amps from a +12V1@8A and +12V2@13A.

Thats numbers are right , i just checked, those are in the label on the psu . So i need to buy a new one or not?.
If i have to buy a new , tell me how much ampers i have to check in rails to make the config work good and safe.(not brands causes its not easy to get one of thoses)

The GIGABYTE PoweRock Series 500W (GE-N500A-C2), with its combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 36 Amps and two (6+2)-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors, is more than sufficient to power your new system configuration and even a discrete graphics card if you should decide to use one in the future.

The OEM for that power supply is CWT and is based on CWT's DSA 500 model.

CWT is also the OEM for more than 66% of Corsairs power supply models.
