You're going to need to upgrade your PSU, I'm afraid. What are your other system components (as well as overclocks), and do you have OC'ing in mind for the future?

Well, your PSU has 370watts available on the 12v, so you actually won't have to upgrade.
TechPowerUp has that model HD6950 pulling 153watts, coupled with your processor's maximum pull of 125 should be just fine. It's times like this you pat yourself on the back for getting a good PSU.

Keep in mind, however, that your HD6950 could be pushed a bit further, as well as your processor. Should you choose to do so, I would then get a high quality 600W PSU or an average 700W one.

Ok Thanks for your help. No over clocking in the future

OK so i changed my mind. since i already had a 5770 i got another one and a 650 watt power supply. is the power supply enough to run two of these cards.

i got these parts.

hope i did good by buying this stuff

yes. that 650W psu's good. 12v rail has more than enough amperage to run 5770s in CF. you should be able to run most if not all games for the foreseeable future. nice mobo btw
