I am interested in this psu, would 500W be enough ? or should I upgrade to 600W for $5 CAD

About 350W would leave a huge headroom. Try CX450M.

You can get a much better Corsair CXM 450W for $70 which is cheaper and would perform better overall and provide you with more than enough power, even if you increased the GPU to a 1070 or 1080.

The quality of the build, the capacitors inside, the voltage output.

As a bonus, you also get some modularity.

Theyre really good units for their price.

i'd go with Seasonic's 650FX. much better and longer warranty (10yrs) vs (3yrs for evga) and a little higher wattage doesn;t hurt...leaves room to upgrade in the future. plus its fulls modular and from what i can see, the 500BQ is semi modular https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151186&cm_re=seasonic-_-17-151-186-_-Product
