Is my PSU powerful enough for this video card?

Currently I am running with a GTX 460 but would like to upgrade to: http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-SuperClocked-Dual-Link-Graphics-02G-P4-2765-KR/dp/B00DHW4HXY

Here are my specs:
MSI 790FX-GD70 motherboard
AMD Phenom II X64 965 3.4ghz quad core
F3-12800CL9-4GBRL (x2) ram
MSI GTX 460 (current).......... upgrade to...... EVGA 760 superclocked
Two hard drives
Four case fans
Keyboard, mouse, few other peripherals here and there, as well as two external HDDS

Is my PSU, Rosewill RP650-2, powerful enough to run all that with the new card?

Thanks for the help!

    Thanks for the reply. I figured as much, but I looked at some sites around where you plug in your specs and it recommends a minimum PSU. They were saying 700 min. It sounded too high to me so I thought I'd come here.

    Thanks again.

    that is right, as i said more than enough but keep in mind if you want to add more storage or another GTX760 in SLI you will need more power so the more money your spend on this PSU won't -as the most said- go with the wind !
