Default Will my power supply handle it?

I'm planning on building a system with the following parts:

Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 Conroe 2.13GHz
GIGABYTE GA-965P-DS3 Socket T (LGA 775) Intel P965
CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 800
eVGA Geforce 7900GT
Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA
ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro CPU Cooler

That, a couple of fans and another hard drive I'm keeping from my current build.

Will my Antec Smartpower 2.0 500W power supply handle that, or should I get a 600W? If you have any comments about the build, I'd be glad to hear them too.

Your current power supply is fine.
