You're going to have to name the model of the psu. Not all 500w psus are created equal.

I've seen people on PCPartPicker run a 770 on 450w, but they were from reputable companies and trusted OEMs.

Build: CPU: Intel Core i5 4690k | CPU Cooler: Hyper 212 Evo | Motherboard: MSI Z97 Gaming 5 | RAM: 8GB G-Skill Ares 1600Mhz CL9 | Storage: 120GB Samsung 840 Evo + WD Blue 1TB 64MB Cache + Seagate Barracuda 2TB 64MB Cache | GPU: MSI GTX 960 | Case: Cooler Master Storm Enforcer | Power Supply: EVGA 600B Non-Modular |

I like the way you phrased that.

 

Yes it should be fine. It's a budget unit, but at least it can supply it's rated Wattage.
