Um, 500W might, but it depends on Amps.

You never showed that.

It's on the label on the psu, just pop open the case, and it's usually visible.

Oh, which card exactly?

This one will be plenty of power for the 285: Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply - Power Supplies

Also a very good brand.
