Yes, it should be sufficient at stock clock settings. VIP is blacklisted in PSU recommendation thread but by the nomenclature its gold .. Is it 80+ GOLD rated ? lol

BMG ftw!!
We will be able to answer only if you post the max current in 12V rail.

I heard that the gold series isn't as bad as rest of the PSUs.

lol, 18A * 12V = 216 watts.

All good PSUs have around ~80% of the rating on the 12 V rail.

Dunno how VIP labelled it as 500 watt.

^^ and the mobo has to draw power from the psu and PSu may run the config with the 955BE just fine but adding a HD6670 will put additional ~50-60W load on it which your PSU won't be able to handle hence getting a new PSU is recommended.
