Does anyone know if the above psu will power an i5 3570k and gtx 660 non ti build?

Yes, I just bought it today, because it was right next to the PC power and cooling lineup and I though that was what I had grabbed until I got back home and looked at the receipt. Should I go back and get a different one around 500-600 watts. On pcpartpick(dot)com, it is saying for my entire build that I need at least 330 watts, so would a 500 watt enermax be ok?

enermax = (not) fail. --edit -- I rescind my fail rating, I was thinking of a different brand.

Bring it back and get the good one. Yes, you need around 400 watts to run it, and 500 watts to keep the PSU from running near capacity all the time.

microcenter seems kinda expensive for those PSUs. Also, i was wrong about the enermax brand, go for it if it's better priced than the other 2 brands.

So 500 watts are enough? The enermax is only 500 watts with 34 amps on the +12V rail.

500 watts is enough. 34a x 12v = 408 watts, which is plenty for a 125w CPU and a 660. If you have to add a lot of drives or other add in cards (RAID, USB3.0, etc) consider the 600 watt.

You don't have many parts, so like I said, the 500 watt is sufficient. Getting a 600 watt gives you more headroom if you want to add stuff later on. If it were me I would get a 600w corsair, antec, or silverstone.
