here is my current power supply:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Its the Corsair HX650. Here is my current build
Processor: AMD FX-8350
MOBO: Asus Sabertooth 990fx R2.0
RAM: 2X4 Gskill Ripjaw 1866mhx 8gig
Video Card: EVGA Nvidia Geforce GTX 560 2gig
Hard drives: 1 SSD and 1 7200 RPM drive
CPU cooler: Corsair H100i
Optical Drive; 1 dvdrw
Case: Corsair 400R with 3 case fans
onboard sound and Lan

So Ive got this decent 650 watt PSU and Im thinking about upgrading my video card to the GTX 780. Will my current PSU be able to handle it or am I cutting it close? If so I would probably just try to get a 750 Watt PSU but im tryin to save money because the video card is going to run me 500 bucks or so. Any help would be appreciated.

The HX650 should have no problem running a GTX 780. It should run any current single GPU card.
