Hey,

I was wondering if this power supply:
SeaSonic ECO 500W Active PFC, 2X PCI-E 6/8, 34A / 12V Single Rail 220V Only

Will be good enough for a few years with the following computer specification:
CPU -Intel Quad-Core i7 3770 3.4Ghz HyperThreading 8MB Tray
CPU Cooling - ZALMAN 8000T PLUS SI EDITION
Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-H77-DS3H
Case - Fractal Design Define R3
RAM - 2xCorsair 8Gb CMX8GX3M1A1600C11 CL11
HDD - Seagate 2TB, 3.5", SATA3, Barracuda 7200.14
SSD - Samsung 120GB 2.5" SSD 840 Series
GPU - MSI GTX660 TI 2GB HDMI OC EDITION

Thanks a lot!

Yes, for a 660 ti, it's recommended a 450W psu and with 24A on it's +12V rail, you have a quality psu with 34A, so it will do, the i7 has a low power consumption.

Thanks for the quick reply...
Do you think it will last for a few good years? (Let's say, 5 years?)
Also, if something did happen to it, how likely will it ruin other computer parts?

It's a quality psu, it will last, but how long nobody knows, it has its protections in case the psu start to fail, no need to worry.

Does that Seasonic SS-500BT OEM power supply have any PCI Express supplementary power connectors?

You need at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors for the GeForce GTX 660 Ti graphics card.
