Question Is my PSU good enough?

So I finally decided to upgrade my graphics card, I currently have a 9600gt and I want this Newegg.com - HIS H487FN512P Radeon HD 4870 512MB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards HD4870, the question is if my Cooler Master Extreme Power Plus 500w Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER eXtreme Power Plus RS-500-PCAR-A3 500W ATX12V V2.3 Power Supply - Power Supplies is good enough to handle it or should I get a new PSU as well?

My other Specs

E7300@3.33Ghz
2*2gb OCZ Reaper
1 320gb Hard Drive
1 DVD Burner
No extra fans

Thanks in advance to anyone who helps.
