I think it should be OK. The minimum requirement is 500W psu with 12V currentratingof 30A. It is also depending on how many HDD that you have in your system.

You could get an aftermarket cpu cooler, they reduce the noise and temps dramaticly but they cost a few more bucks. If you going to keep the card long term then it would be a good investment. I modded a H70 to my gpu, took an hour or so and now im dead quiet and my temps never go above 50c. Check out the link in my sig for more info on the mod.
