I got an Athlon II x4 620 and 8 Gb DDR3 1333 mhz, I'm planning to get an ATI 6670 DDR5 or 7750 DDR5.

Will a 500w coolermaster PSU works well on this system? is it enough?

it is enough for the an ATI 6670? could it also handle a 7750?

Do you already own the Coolermaster(aka Crappermaster)?
If not choose another brand. However, even tho it's a
bad PSU, it does deliver it's rated power, it should be able to handle either of those cards.

As long as your not planning to go overclock crazy, you'll be fine on either of those GPU's. I had a Coolermaster 550w for a few months on my backup PC, it powered the following setup fine:
Athlon X4 630 @ 3.20GHZ - ATi HD5770 - 8GB DDR3 1600 - 2x HDD - 4x 120mm fans

No, I do not own it already, but I live in Venezuela, a country where the only certified PSU's I can get are Coolermaster and thermaltake which is too expensive here...

So I guess I'll stick with Coolermaster, thanks for the answer!

500w should be plenty enough. Cooler-master is a great brand but most of their power supplies are low quality. I'd get a more reliable brand like Corsair.

it'll work, as I said it's faults were other than delivering it's rated power,
which is more than you need.
