Not sure about power supply

Ok so I have a system and here are the specs.

Asus z68 motherboard
Intel i5-2500 processor 3.30GHz
Windows 7 64 bit
8 Gigabytes of ddr3 corsair vengeance ram
500 gigabyte 16mb cache 7200 rpm western digital hardrive
500w power supply http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139027 <-- that one
geforce 560ti graphics card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130604 <-- that one

My question is, with also taking into account that I have a dvd drive and a wireless card, if I add a SSD to this system, is a 500w going to be able to handle everything?

Edit: I will not be overclocking in any way.

  1. The 500w corsair should be fine with a single video card.

    So as long as im not getting a dual video card/ upgrading the video card, this build will last me? That's a relief.
  3. I never make guarantees on whether a build will last. Keep your receipts for the motherboard, cpu, power supply and video card. I shudder on how many mistakes newbies make building their own. If money is tight and you've never built your own, hire a tech to do it for you.
