First time building a computer and I need advice on how many watts my PSU should have. So far I plan on buying:
ASRock B75M mobo
GeForce GTX 560
Corsair Vengeance 2x4gb
4 case fans (and maybe some lights)

Is a 500W psu enough? Do I need more or would less work?

I would also like any advice. I have a case, a monitor, keyboard/mouse, hdd, etc. and I have $600 to spend on the cpu, gpu, mobo, psu, ram, and anything else I need. Are the things I listed good enough for a descent gaming rig?
