I was wondering if the 500w power supply that comes with the case will be sufficient? Or if you see any other problems with the setup overall?
If I have to be worried about something, I'll probably more worried about the quality of the power supply rather than the wattage. A decent 500W will run the system fine, but a cheaply built power supply tends to go out more quickly/often than a high quality power supply. It is going to be a risk, most of the time a cheap power supply will last, even when powering a hungry system with a monster video card. So if you can fork out an extra $50, I would get a better power supply (see the original post for recommendations) and possibly another case (if you want). If money is tight, the case+500W in the wishlist is adequate.
