I just want to make sure 650 watts will power this computer so I can save $30 and not get the 750w PSU.

PSU: Corsair 650


GPU: XFX GTX 285 Black Edition

CPU: E8500

RAM: G.SKill 4 gigs.

HD: WD Caviar Black 640gig

Display: 22" widescreen

CPU COOLER: Xigmatek S1283

4 Scythe SlipStream fans to replace the 4 in my NZXT Tempest Case.

& 1, 12" cathode.

yes, 650w would be more than enough to power all of those, though if you're thinking of adding a second video card, you would need 750w or higher.

Yep, since your board is not crossfire or SLI, you should be fine there.
