Is my PSU enough?

Hi all, I currently have a Seasonic 500w PSU, but I used a PSU calculator on the upgrade I'm planning and it got me a little worried? I know calculators tend to err on the side of caution and I have a tight budget, so I thought I'd check here before splashing out on a better PSU.

I've had it for 3 years and it's been running:
AMD X2 4400, Radeon HD 4850, 1x SATA, 2x IDE, 1x PCI, 1x DDR2 RAM.

Now I'm going to have:
AMD Phenom II X4 965, same GPU, 2(or 3)x SATA, 1x PCI, 1(or 2)x DDR3 RAM.

Is it still good or do I need a higher wattage? Hope you can advise me, thanks :)
