That's what I was saying. If you intended on adding another 6950 you'd want 850W or at least 750W. If you only want to use one card you are fine with the 650W.

Run this tool to help you find the minimum you need in a power supply http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp. With the items listed on his build the power supply calculator places the minimum power needed on this build at 393w. So a good solid 650w power supply should be more then enough to fit their needs. For Crossfire the power requirement goes up to 509w needed. So even with 2x 6950 video cards a good 650w like the corsair should be enough.
