Hey guys, should I turn on my PC? Spec:

Zotac GTX650 2GB
PSU is Fortron 500W

500w is adequate but I wouldn't connect any other cards after that

500W should be fine, but its a pretty crappy generic PSU. Its kind of dangerous to run those sort of PSU's for your system.
I would recommend upgrading later on to something like a CX500 from Corsair.

Yes, I know it's generic, I'm on budget ATM I'll upgrade though.
I'm not planning to connect any other card, Thanks.
