Nope, its should support these(4000 series "Haswell" and the refresh "devil's canyon" CPU's):

note that for ix-4xxxK models you will need to buy a separate cooler, best would be to buy a combo second hand from someone who is upgrading.

and get the GTX 1650 Super if you can best price/performance GPU from nvidia at this point
here is a comparison:

a PSU with 450watt to 550 watt should be plenty btw

As stated above, you need a 4th gen CPU. The info can be found here:

Also, if you're going to upgrade the PSU, be sure you get a decent name brand unit. And do NOT base your choice solely on wattage. Make sure the PSU is 80 Plus certified & has a single +12v rail with at least 30A. If you're in the US, this Corsair 450W is currently on sale for $35 after rebate:

I read all the replies and decided to go with Gigabyte-GA-H61M-DS2, Apevia ATX-AD500W 500W ATX 12V Power Supply, Rosewill Cube Mini ITX/Micro-ATX/ATX Mid Tower Gaming PC Computer Case thanks to all that replied.

You didn't say you were planning on a complete rebuild. What CPU are you going to use? The i5 2500K is an old Sandy Bridge from 2011 so you're basically build an 8 year old PC. The board is "old" too, only supports 2nd & 3rd gen core-i CPUs.

Poor power supply selection too, I suggest you rethink your choice. Apevia is not a quality brand. The one you chose is not 80 Plus certified & is based on an older ATX design. There are no PCIE connectors so you'll either have to stick with a lower power GPU or use an adapter cable. BTW, why do you feel you need a 500W unit? The 2500K is rated at 95W & the GTX 1050Ti is rated at 75W. The remaining devices require very little power. Don't get me wrong, it's good to have additional power available for future upgrades, but the Apevia is simply not a good unit.

Not a fan of the case design either.
