I have a Corsair CX500v2, will this be fine to power a Sapphire R9 280X?

no from me, 458w is to close imo and cx models are entry level units from corsair which have high rate of failure than other models from corsair

Definitely not. That's cutting it extremely close. The R9 280X is a really high end card and you want to pair it with an entry level quality PSU. Go for the VX550 at least. The VX series is a lot more reliable than the CX series, which is for entry level PCs.
