Yes, but probably on the lower side.
For that system i would go with a 600 watt, but your pc wont have any problems with 500 watts, i just personally like having a bit more headroom for overclocking and future upgrades.

If I had a good amount of money I would not be asking this. xd
But I have one more question...
Even tho chieftec psu has a bronze certificate you are saying antec psu is a better choice?
How is that so?
And IS the antec psu good enough for my pc...?

I would suggest a cx550m from corsair.
its a really cheap high quality psu.
also modular, if you cant find it, try the cx550 (non m)
its the same psu, just not modular.

its also from a name brand that will give you really good warrenty and is rated really high on the psu list (compared to price)

Your GPU can pull up to 280 Watts, your CPU about 100, as for HDD's etc add another 50.
So for peace of mind about 430 watts, if you're running benchmarks and solving the riddle of life(Prime95).
550W will do more than fine, both now and in the future.
