Will a 650Watt PSU be fine for a 780 and a 8350?

Title says it all. I just got my MSI 780 to realize that my CPU (AMD Phenom x4 965 BE) is heavily bottlenecking the GPU. So I want to upgrade to a 8350, so I was just wondering if my 650 watt 80+ Bronze would supply the enough power?

Thanks,
Adam

  1. Maybe. I would need to the make and model of the PSU, not all bronze rated 650w PSUs are created equal.

    Yes. But if you plan on overclocking you will want to upgrade to a higher end unit.
