I plan on overclocking an Intel Core i5-3570k CPU and having an overclocked GPU. I plan on doing SERIOUS gaming so will a 650W power supply be good?

Edit: I just realized this is in the CPU category and can't really change it

Depends on the power supply. Cheap noname crap is no way near capable of delivering 650w.

GPU? PSU is related with the GPU.

That's great if it isn't a CX.
750w good quality power supply and you can power whatever you throw in there, except of course 2 titans for instance :)

I'm not sure of the GPU yet - most likely an AMD R9 280X.

Then you don't need a 750w, 650 would be more than enough - Provided of course that it's decent quality.

Edit;
I just re-read your question, not sure where I got the 750w from? .. But YES, 650w good power supply is more than enough.

R9 280X requires 30A on 12v and a 550W psu minimum, one 6pin and one 8pin pcie connector.

550w minimum if you use the really crappy noname brands. That's common knowledge =)
