PSU advise

Hi guys, I just need pro advice about the PSU that I’m going to buy if it will suffice the power of the rig that I’m planning to build.

I’m planning to buy Silverstone STT50EF-ES 500W.

Here's my rig.

Mobo: Asus P8Z77 M-Pro
CPU: Intel i5-3570k (3.4 GHz up to 3.8 GHz)
Ram: Kingston HyperX Red 8G (1600)2x4
HDD: WD Green 320G
Drive: DVD Writer Asus black 24x w/ lightscribe SATA

And I’m planning to buy AMD Radeon 7870 for my GPU. Just to add up my case is a CoolerMaster HAF 690 II advance that has 3 140mm Fans and 1 80mm fan.

Now, do you think 500w is already good enough for this build?

Thanks for sparing time just to answer this thread.

Sorry my English is broken :)

Yes, a good 500 watts PSU will be adequate for your needs. Good brands are Corsair, Seasonic, Antec, to name a few.
