You could run that system at stock speeds with a 500 watt corsair psu, so you have about 100 watts to spare. You should be fine.

its more than enough, they overclocked it to 4.818, and didnt hit 600 yet. close but look at the test setup:

Nvidia GeForce GTX 590 3GB graphics card (GeForce driver 280.26 WHQL)
120GB Patriot Wildfire SSD
Enermax Revolution 85+ 1.05kW power supply
Asus Crosshair V Formula motherboard motherboard
Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z motherboard
Asus Sabertooth X58 motherboard
4/6GB (3 x 2GB) Corsair 1,600MHz DDR3 memory (CL9)
Thermaltake Frio CPU cooler for AMD processors; Be Quiet! Dark Rock Pro cooler for Intel LGA1155 processors and the Be Quiet! Dark Rock Advanced for Intel LGA1366 processors.


that gpu right there is a power hungry dual gpu. since you are only using a 560ti, its WAY more than enough.
