500 watts is plenty for that system, but not all watts are created equal.

Be sure to get a quality power supply. A good 400w would probably suffice, but I would go with 500w just to have some headroom.

Then just run it.

"We can’t recommend this power supply, however if you are really on a budget this may be an option until you have money to buy a decent power supply for your PC."
