So, this is my build, i think i have finalized everything until ran into a bit of a snag.

Anyways i was wondering one last question. Will my PSU be able to handle the video card plus the build? The video card says it requires a 500 watt PSU and just wanted to make sure.

CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor ($119.99 @ Microcenter)

Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 XT 2GB Video Card ($244.99 @ Newegg)
Case: NZXT Source 220 ATX Mid Tower Case ($49.99 @ Amazon)
Power Supply: Antec Neo Eco 520W 80 PLUS Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($39.99 @ Newegg)

Yes it will be adequate for the build you posted, but you will not be able to do any overclocking because overclocking will require a bigger PSU.
