    Default PSU for ASUS R9270

    I have such a PC assembly

    CPU: Intel Core i3-530, 3433 MHz
    Motherboard: Asus P7H55-M Pro
    System memory: 6080 MB (DDR3-1333 DDR3 SDRAM)
    Video adapter: AMD Radeon HD 5770 (512 MB)
    PSU: Xigmatek NRP-VC503 500W

    I want to take the ASUS R9270, is this enough PSU?

    AMD R9 270 - On your average system the card requires you to have a 500 Watt power supply unit.

    Replacing your old power supply, which was never a good one, with something decent is recommended.

    In your link it says that the AC power consumption of the whole PC including a i7 3960X overclocked at 4,6GHz is only 254W with the graphics card loaded for 100%. So there is no way that his PC needs a 500W PSU, he needs a good power supply. The system from Guru3D maybe needs a good 500W PSU, because the difference in CPU power consumption.

    The Mask knows his stuff, I'd go with his advice.
