Windows 7: Is this PSU enough to power a GTX260 SOC Edition?

Is this PSU enough to power a GTX260 SOC Edition?

I was going to get XFX 650W PSU for my rig now as i have a GTX260 and wasthnking about SLIing it 1 day but my PSU now has started to smell like it may be burning so i shut it off quick and decided to get new PSU now but it will need to be a little cheaper than the XFX 1 as im on a budget as its needed right now is this 1 OCZ 500W ModXStream Pro Power Supply - UK: Electronics & Photo good enough to power my GPU and other componets on my pc. As i have heard OCZ were good but its only 500w like my 1 now is so was worried about it burning again.

For your current system that OCZ is more than sufficient. I wouldn't run SLI'ed GTX260's on it, but it is fine for a single card.
