Hi i am basically building a new computer because i am upgrading almost every part of my computer =)
The specs that i will be running is a
I5 2500k with a ASUS P8P67 Pro ATX P67 motherboard
6gb ram (kingston value ram)
2 60gb ssd with a 1td hdd
NZXT Tempest Evo EATX Mid Tower Case Black
XFX 650W psu
Probably going to get a nvidia 470 gpu or a 6950 and will probably sli/cross fire in the future.
Will the 650W psu be enough? the psu is branded by xfx but was made by sea sonic.

Not going to be enough if you're going to crossfire/SLI, if you don't it's fine.

If you are going to multi-GPU look into an 850W (not sure how much of a budget you're under, but given that you're looking at the 470 and such I expect it's quite tight), have a glance at a corsair TX 850W. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

If you're happy with 1 card, you should be fine - seasonic is none too bad in terms of PSUs either.

A 750W will be fine for xfire or SLI (2 cards), so long as you do not intend to OC, if you're going to be OCing (either the CPU or the GPU), I'd go for a 850W just to make sure you always have enough overhead, that's also a bit of future proofing if you want to get a better card when the time comes to upgrade.

If you're just doing 2-way with no OC the 750W will work fine.

If you want to do 3-way 1000W would be best.
