Hello im working on upgrading my computer but i need some help i am not quite sure what i should upgrade as far as my fan and/or power supply 

my motherboard is a MSI 785GTM-E45 here is the link of the board on the MSI websitehttp://us.msi.com/product/mb/785GTM-E45.html 

im probably putting in a N660 TF 2GD5 http://us.msi.com/product/vga/N660-TF-2GD5.html 

my power supply is a 500 watt safe power 

and my fan is 12volt dc brush less fan 

What im not sure about is 1) if i have enough power to run everything and 2) will that fan work or should i get a better one or add another fan to the system 

thank you for your help

your cpu will not work with that motherboard and yes a 600 watt or better is recommended i like a rosewill 630 watt or a OCZ ZS 650 watt. you will either need an am3 cpu or an am2+/am3 compatible motherboard. theres not much you can do about this go check the motherboard cpu support list
