550/650w XFX PSU would be good for your build since your not overclocking. They are made by Seasonic, who also makes Corsair's mid-higher end units. Great value for the money: http://www.ncixus.com/products/?sku=59615&promoid=1215 The 650w version is only $10-15 more...

The PSU you currently have is of very poor quality, and you should replace it ASAP. Check out this review of the 600w version. http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Cooler-Master-eX...

It has 650w and yes you should be able to overclock a bit. ;)  Is plenty for your system. :)

While the GTX760 will use less power, that doesn't change the fact that your PSU is a very poor quality unit. IMO it's not worth risking a $200-300 video card, or possibly something else in your system getting damaged by that unit.

Thanks for Best Suggestion,
btw bro, i am running ati 6870 with i5 2310 8gb 1600, from 2 years, ati 6870 = 151 watt and gtx 760 170 watt, is 20 watt can do bad? i know my question is silly,
but if i think my system which i mention earlier, with ati 6870 was running from 2.5 years without any power failer,+ i am not overclocker,
if i add gtx 760, i dont think that can do bad, although removing 1 harddisk can Help?

Honestly you could be fine, but I still think you should replace your current power supply ASAP.

ok, so i bought Nvidia Geforce Gtx 760 2gb and running with current PSU (cooler master extreme power plus) performance is too good,
but is that fine now? is gpu getting enough amp, i should worry about it?
+ i removed 1 harddisk. (i also playing gta 4 from half an hour.)
