GPU/PSU question

Last response: in Graphics & Displays

Just bought everything for a new build. Items are:

Intel Core i5-2400
Asus P8V68-V/Gen3
Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 8GB (2x4GB)
Asus Radeon HD 6870
Antec Basiq 500w

I was really hoping I could afford a better PSU in this build but I just couldn't. At least I went with Antec, right? Well, my question is this- is the PSU sufficient enough to push the 6870? I'm waiting til morning to install everything, but if you guys don't think this PSU will get the job done then I will return it. I really DO NOT want to spend more than what I did on this, but if I must for the safety of my card, I will.

Sooo does anyone really not have an opinion, or is just "skip over this post" day?

Should be okay as you have 36A on the two 12v.
