PSU strong enough?

New build for a decent gaming rig

Antec 900 case
GIGABYTE GA-P55M-UD2 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Intel Core i7-875K 2.93GHz LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Unlocked(going to OC 3.6ish)
COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus RR-B10-212P-G1 120mm sleeve CPU Cooler (extra fan for P/P)
MSI GTX 460 Hawk
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)

Currently have a 650W EW Antec and was wondering IF I should upgrade to a 750 to be on the safe side or if the 650 would keep the system stable enough.

Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

More about strong enough
  1. you dont need 8 gig of ram for gaming .
    4 is plenty

    its also pretty easy to overclock an i5 760 , so IMO its not worth the extra cost to buy the i7 875k
  2. Your PSU is powerful enough.
  3. Not sure if its good enough for two 460s, but your good for what you listed.
  4. Considering that his motherboard is not SLI capable, then he doesnt need to worry about adding a second card.
  5. Nobody throws away an Earthwatts 650. More than good enough for a single 460/470 with an OC'ed i7. (And RAID, and SSD, .... you get the picture). It's a keeper.

    'Bout the RAM - Keep the 8 GBs only if you're looking at photo editing maybe. In that case, you might actually wanna add some more! For gaming, surfing & multimedia, as of now you dont need any more than 4.
