This is the build I am putting together:

Intel i5-2500k processor
Corsair Vengeance 8GB RAM
Western Digital Caviar Blue 500 GB hard drive
EVGA GeForce GTX 560 GPU
ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 motherboard
Antec EA Green 650w PSU

My only concern is the 650w PSU, I'm trying to figure out if I need more wattage. Or do you think that will be enough?

A good 500-550W psu would be sufficient for your build. To answer your question, yes, the Antec EA-650D is sufficient for your build.

If you haven't already bought the parts I'd recommend you get the GTX 560Ti. And you'll be fine with >550W
