Be more specific with "500W". It could be a generic 500W junker.

The power output seems fine, though you should list what brand it is, as quality is just as important (if not more) than power output.

As Rob said, if its a generic no-name one it will die a death and not be enough, but i use a similar spec with a decent one and its fine.

Sounds good to me. A good way of figuring that stuff out is googling the exact computer part and looking at the different reviews in the online stores.

Maker of the infamous Lexa case.

I've never dealt with them, but it should be fine. Besides, that's what warranty is for.

Yeah, and also, I just changed my car I'm getting from a 7900GT to a 7950GT. I'm just really concerned wether 500 watts will be enough : ( I'm scared!

you have to make sure it is a TRUE 500 watt. Some of them test as high as 500 but aren't truly 500 watt supplies.
