Will this psu be enough to power this?

Hi, I'd like to get some feedback for this psu, this will be my first build and I'm not sure if this psu will be enough for this build.

PSU: OCZ modxstream pro 500w modular
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817341016

here's the system:
nzxt phantom 410 -case
gigabyte Z77-D3H -Mobo
i5 3570k -cpu
g.skills 8gb sniper -ram
samsung 840 pro 256gb -SSD
msi N660Ti PE 2GD5/OC -gpu

On newegg's psu finder utility, my system was said to use around 410w. I'm not sure if the graphics card will need more because its OC'd. I tried looking at msi's product page and cant find how much power this card will need.

    Have a similar system sitting on the bench ( Asus MB, G.Skil Ripjaws, Corsair C70 Case, Antec TP550w )
    Killawatt readings
    Idle ..........................49-51w
    Prime 95....................99-102w
    Furmark benchmark....224w
    Prime and Furmark .....262w
    BF3...........................240w
    ACIII ........................220w

    The MXSP500 should do fine

    Thanks! cant wait to start building
  3. Newegg's PSU finder should be recommending a PSU with wattage of at least 400W (with two PCIe connectors) for your system.

    This is much better than the MXSP500:
    Rosewill Capstone-450M ($70 @ Newegg / $4 shipping)
    http://pcpartpicker.com/part/rosewill-power-supply-capstone450m
    More efficient, independantly regulated.

    HT4U measured that GPU drawing 147W in 'gaming'.

    Aw sweet :D thanks! I would've never found how much pwer that card uses, again thanks for the response and if I should choose the 660ti build over the 680, I'll most likely get the psu you linked :D
