520 watts should be fine for that card. Enjoy

It says it needs 500watts on the back of the box...... Will this be a problem for the rest of my system?

It's just a requirement for insurance purposes. It's for people that have bad quality power supplies, and the card itself will not eat more than 220w power. 520W antec power supply is from a quality brand, so it will work perfectly for you.

500W is the suggested system power needed with the assumption that you have a powerful CPU, multiple HDD and CD drives, and a full compliment of Ram, so 500W is plenty.

GTX 580 needs 244W for the GPU. The 560ti needs 170W all to itself:
