hanomajstor,
Welcome to SF. As mentioned above yes seems to be the logical answer. My concern is with the PSU it's self. The PSU is the life blood of your system and I'm not familiar with this make and I'm concerned to its quality and rail spec's. The good news is your not trying to drive two GTX 470's in SLI. If you are purchasing this 500 watt to install as apposed to it already being installed then I would look for a quality name brand PSU. Here is a PSU calculator which will give you some guidance in the capacity after additional mod's.
