Hi, Sushanti977.

A 650 watt power supply should be enough for this system, as long as your PSU has 2x6 pin PCI-E cables for the HD6870.

Your rig won't require any more than 300 watts of power at peak load condition.. So yes, a Corsair 650W is plenty.. On a side note, may I suggest you to go for the Samsung spinpoint F3 instead.! They will be faster compared to your current selection and won't consume any more power also..
