I'm building my seccond PC and I'm struggling with power calculation. My hardware is:

Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced (RC-120A-KKN1)
ASRock 970 EXTREME4
AMD Phenom II X4 965 (HDZ965FBGMBOX)
Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3 (4X2) (CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B)
ASUS EAH6670/DIS/1GD5 Radeon HD 6670
Seagate 1TB 7200RPM 32MB Cache (ST31000528AS)
ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS

-SILVERSTONE Strider Plus 500W ATX 12V (ST50F-P)-

I do not plan on overclocking. Also, I know I should've purchased RAM without large headers because now I'll have to suffer the Phenom's insane stock fan. Stupid me, I know... But any info on my power supply or other helpful information would be greatly appreciated. I'm on a budget as well.

And the gpu ? Also how are you going(or how did you did) to fit that motherboard inside that case ? it only supports mini-itx motherboards, amd doesn't have one for am3+ socket.

I forgot,

ASUS EAH6670/DIS/1GD5 Radeon HD 6670

As for the case, it is still in theory because I havent bought it yet, (thankfully).

Thank you for your reply.

What parts did you bought ?
And yes, the psu that you listed is more than sufficient for that card and cpu, but if you have the motherboard and cpu, don't get that case, get a mid tower case for it, look for the bitfenix merc, corsair 200R, nzxt source 210 (or elite).

Well, you psu is more than enough, just change the case for a mid tower one and it's all good.

You listed some great choices in my exact price range, especially the NZXT Source 210 which will be my new selected case. Thanks again for being so helpful and responsive!! You saved me from getting the wrong case all together. What a disappointment that would have been.
