  1. That PSU is of awful quality!!!
    I wouldnt trust anything with it.
    But yes it can run it although it may not last long.

    Technically a 500W power supply is good enough but as blacknemesist pointed out that is a poor quality supply meaning it is unlikely to put out 500W. Do yourself a favor and upgrade the power supply to a 500W from Seasonic, Corsair, or Antec.

    I would quite like to get maybe, a 6 or 700W PSU, do you have any recommendations?

    So you're saying upgrade? Or will I be fine?
  5. Upgrade! When a power supply fails it can sometimes take the motherboard, video card, cpu, and memory with it.

    Here is one for $30 after rebate and free shipping http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139027

    Here is a 600W for $60 with $6 shipping http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139048

    If thats your budget i think the card will work out. If you going to get into some real serious gaming you would need a better card

    The higher end the card the more frames/performance you will get.
