230Vac, 47~63 Hz

Well it does meet the minimum wattage, and has more than enough amps, but you might be pushing it. What are the rest of the specs, of your system? I'd say it can handle it.

I would suggest these PSUs though:

Newegg.com - XCLIO GREATPOWER X14S4P3 550W ATX12V 550W Power Supply 100-240V / 200-240V UL, CUL, TUV, CB, VDE, FIMKO, DEMKO, NEMKO, SEMKO - Retail

Buy.com - Corsair 520W SLI Certified Modular ATX Power Supply - CMPSU-520HX
