Its an Corsair Builder Series 500w Power 80 plus Certified
System:
-Intel Core i5 2400 3.1 Ghz
-Nvidia geforce 560 (non ti)
-8 Gb ram (2 Sticks)
-Dvd Rw Burner
-Seagate Barracuda 7200 Rpm 500 gb Hdd Sata 6 gbps
-Asrock h61 ATX motherboard
 
For a system using a single GeForce GTX 560 graphics card NVIDIA specifies a minimum of a 450 Watt or greater power supply that has a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 24 Amps or greater and that has at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

Total Power Supply Wattage is NOT the crucial factor in power supply selection!!! Total Continuous Amperage Available on the +12V Rail(s) is the most important.

The Corsair Builder Series CX500 V2 (CMPSU-500CXV2), with its combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 34 Amps and with two (6+2)-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors, is more than sufficient to power your system configuration with a single GeForce GTX 560.
