Rate my budget build

I'm planning to get:

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor

CPU Cooler: NZXT HAVIK 120 75.8 CFM CPU Cooler

Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard

Memory: G.Skill Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory

Storage: Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive

Video Card: XFX Radeon HD 7870 2GB Video Card

Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 ATX Mid Tower Case

Power Supply: PC Power & Cooling 500W ATX12V Power Supply

Optical Drive: Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer

Also, one question, is it dangerous that the minimum watt supply for the gpu is 500 and that my power supply is right on it?

  1. The PSU is more than enough. Looks great!
  2. So it's alright if the psu wattage is on the minium watt supply? I'm just scared that I will go over the psu's limite and my pc will shut down while im in the middle of a game
  3. That build will probably use 300w at max. 500w is enough.
  4. They say 500w for minimum since there are some really low quality PSU's out there that are labeled at 500w but only provide 250w.
