If you go to pc parts picker and select the components that you want to use, it will tell you the power consumption. in case you change anything

The voltage on the rails doesn't really say much, indeed.

It would help more to know the rest of your system's specs. 500 watts sounds enough, but there are some PSUs that don't make as much as they say they do (or they can't maintain the 500W load sustained).

Providing a list of parts with brand and model names would help out more.
