Hey guys, im new to this forum, and ive decided with inspiration from my gamer friend, that i want to build my own PC (finally, ive been wanting to do it for a while but now im finally taking the plunge)

Cd drive - LiteOn SHM-165H6S 16x16 DVD+/-RW Dual Layer Drive w/ Lightscribe, Black (OEM)
Im missing a power supply, and i dont know what to get.. my said i would be safe with a 500w, but am i like, borderline safe? or safe for good? anyways, post what you think, money kinda is an issue hah, since im only 17 and i only make so much.. i would like to keep it under 1300CAD for the pc, since i have to buy windows and stuff... blah! i found a guide thing thatcould help me build this thing, as ive never built a pc in my life.
