So I'm in the process of buying a new graphics card, (GTX 1070 ti) and I'm having trouble figuring out if it'll be compatible with my motherboard. My motherboard is a MSI B250M BAZOOKA all the other parts check out, just can't figure this one part out.

Absolutely any modern, PCIE based GPU will 'work' with that motherboard - So, absolutely any 1070TI model you wish to put in there will have no problems from a motherboard compatibility front.

What CPU do you plan to pair with it? What PSU do you have? Those are some potential pitfall areas, the motherboard is not.

I have a Intel Core i5 7500 3.40 GHz and my power supply is a EVGA 500w (don't have the absolute specifics on the PSU)

I'm not entirely sure of it's make and model it's a EVGA 500w

The 500W units from EVGA are not great, unfortunately.

In theory, it could do it.... but I'd be skeptical of it's long-term stability.

Luckily, a quality PSU doesn't have to break the bank. Quality 550W offerings are ~$50.

Well mind I'm most likely NOT gonna be running the games on as high as possible for graphics, I just want to be set for the next few years. But thanks for the info with them only being 50 bucks might as well just buy a new PSU would this PSU work? https://www.bestbuy.com/site/corsair-cx-series-modular-cx750m-750w-atx-power-supply-black/8324202.p?skuId=8324202
What about the CPU would you say that would work decently enough for now at least, it's on my list to replace but had to get the weakest part replaced first being the graphics card.

Thanks again I plan on replacing everything in my computer at some point but it'll be slowly but surely
