I'm planning to get a GTX 770 to replace my GTX 660, but is my power supply 500W (86% Efficiency) enough and will my AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition be bottlenecked?

Power supply will probably be good, though need more info to be sure.

If anything you have that backwards, your Phenom could/would bottleneck the 770.

Wait what, the AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition doesn't bottleneck my gtx 660, how can it bottleneck a 770 (which is 15% better than GTX 680)?
