Power Consumption Problem

Hello, fellow PC enthusiasts.

I was wondering if this PSU http://www.amazon.com/PC-Power-Cooling-Silencer-compatible/dp/B0064XAJ30/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pdT1_S_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=39Z4XTILN76G0&coliid=I3092Q9AXW0YQI would be sufficient enough to power my system.

My system specs are:
AMD Phenom II x4 965 OC'd to 4.0ghz
Cooler Master 212+ CPU heatsink w/ one 120mm fan
1TB WD "Blue" HD
Three 120mm case fans and one 200mm case fan
One blu-ray/dvd internal drive
Sapphire Radeon HD 6850 OC'd to 815mhz/1120mhz
Corsair XMS3 2x4gb 1333mhz RAM

Right now I have a Corsair GS 600w PSU and it is sufficient enough to run my system, but I was hoping to get a fully/semi-modular PSU to replace it, as it has way too many cords that I never use and are just hogging room in my case (Corsair 500R). Also, I plan to upgrade some parts in the future to these:

Would this 500w PSU be enough? If not, can you recommend me a good 600w-700w modular PSU? Thanks in advance :)

  1. -first of all, the mk3 psu should be good
    -dont get dominator platinums. dont perform crap better than generic ram
    -same goes for the h60. a hyper 212 performs better and quieter
    -if you are to get a video card at that price range, a 7870 is a much better value

    also i dont see how its such a big cabling issue for you. just leave the extra cables at the bottom and tie it into a bundle.

    1. Ok, I'll get it then.
    2. The looks probably just caught my eye. I'll most likely just OC the ones I have now.
    3. That's good to know. Although I don't like how much room it takes up.
    4. As far as I can tell, the 7870 typically costs around 20% more. I won't be upgrading for a while anyway; I'll most likely be waiting for the gtx 700 series.
    5. It's an aesthetic issue. I don't like knowing I have a plethora of unused cables jammed in the back-panel.
  3. what? a 7870 costs 194.99 the last time i checked at newegg

    but now it might be 209.99 after MIR

    The $195 7870 went away in the last 2 days(they're running $219 now),
    but the weekend is coming and they're will prob be another sub $200 7870.
