So I recently purchased a few things which include:

GAMMA Classic Series ATX Mid Tower Interior Steel Chassis
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002UDK9U6/ref=oh_deta...

i5 3570k
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007SZ0E1K/ref=oh_deta...

MSI LGA 1155 Intel B75 SATA 6 Gb/s USB 3.0 1 PCI-E x16 3.0 ATX Motherboard B75A-G43
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00863R2K4/ref=oh_deta...

My current specs consist of:
Core 2 Quad Q8300 @2.5 GHz
3 GB DDR3 RAM (Going to upgrade to Corsair Vengeance 8 GB)
500 GB HDD
GTX 460 Superclocked 700mhz>867mhz

I was wondering if, for the new build, would the PSU be enough to enable overclocking the CPU?

500 watts will be fine so long as it is a reliable brand power supply, such as corsair, antec, seasonic, xfx, etc.
