Hello!

I'm a beginner to PC building here.

I've been given a couple of components for free due to my friend upgrading. My propose set up would be:-

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA - H61M -DS2
CPU: i7 3770 (non-k)
RAM: Kingston HyperX Fury 16gb (2x8gb) DDR3 CL10
HDD: 1tb 7200rpm
GPU: MSI Radeon RX 580 Gaming X 8gb
PSU: Cooler Master 500W (RS-500-PCAP-I3)
Dual Monitors

I've read that it's not the best PSU but I'm planning to get an entire system in about a year or so would only be using it until then.
Just wanna know if my old PSU will be able to handle this set up or would I need to replace it to be able to run it.
If so then could you suggest an appropriate budget PSU or a decent one I can get second hand?

Thanks!
