A good 500-600W PSU is more than enough...I'm running something very similar on a Seasonic M12II 520W.

Hi :) 

It depends on PSU make....

A 500w Corsair as an example, will put out a LOT more power than an unbranded 650....

The way to look at it is if its an unbranded PSU....divide the wattage by 2.... therefore an unbranded 650 is really a 325w :( 

All the best Brett :)
