I recommend switching the psu, that one is not good, it has 500w, it will power the card.
But see this : http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Cooler-Master-eX...

With 40-60% of the load(which will have about that), it has high levels of ripple and noise.
This might cause crashes,bsods, throttling of the gpu.

You might get away with it, but I would not try.

1. EVGA recommends a 500w psu with 32a on the +12v rails. Your psu advertises only 30, and it has only one 6 pin connector.
2. Your psu is a tier 4 unit on this list with the caveat to plan on using only 75% of the advertised wattage.
