Will this 560 ti super overclock gpu rev2.0 work on a 500w psu, it says I need minimum 550w. I have an intel i5 2500 cpu, 2 sata hard drives, 1 ide hard drive, 2 140mm fans both with leds and one blu ray optical drive attached to it. Please tell it me it will work no problem, will it void the warranty, is there even a warranty, I got all this from ebuyer. Thanks :)

You could try it. Using a smaller PSU than recommended is not something I would really advise although I have done it before and it worked once. Take note. If you try this when the PSU makes a buzzing sound switch off the system immediately as this is what happened to me before it blew.
 
basically, what is the total amperage for teh 12v lines. a stock 560ti needs 24 amps for the whole system. your overclocked model probly ned 26-28. If that 500W corsair has a decent cushion above that (say at least 34 amps total) it should be fine
