Yes 650w is plenty unless you plan to crossfire. If you plan to crossfire then go with a 750w. Just make sure whichever PSU you go with is high quality.

Hi - there is no harm in a 650w PSU for your system, but plz be aware that
a system with one 7950 will run fine with a quality 550w unit with no limitations.

So, if you want to spend less than the $90 for the 650, consider the 550w version
of the same PSU:

nets to $40 after promo(expires 7/4) & mir.
