My current system has a i7 870(1st gen) 8gb RAM and an GTX 1050 2gb with the cooler master 500 power supply I was planning to upgrade the graphic card to an RX 580 8gb. Is the cooler master 500w power supply efficient to power the RX 580, and how much will the cpu bottler neck the RX 580.

Power supply product number and details:

Cooler master 500
RS-500-PCAR-D3
ATX 12v ver2.3

It's enough for an RX 580 though you might be pushing it a bit, if that PSU is rather old you might want to look into replacing it.

Bottleneck will depend on the game. In a modern CPU heavy title at 1080p AC Odyssey for example it may hold back a 580 quite a bit, in less cpu heavy titles not so much
