650w enough for this setup??

Hey, I'm building my new PC over the summer, and I'm really not sure whether a 650w psu would be enough for this setup.

Specs:
Zotac GTX 680 Amp!
I5 3570k @ 4.5 ghz
G.Skill Ripjaws 1600 8gb
Asrock z77 pro4
WD 1tb black
Crucial m4 60gb
Hyper 212 Evo
NZXT phantom 410

Thanks anyone who responds!

  1. A good quality 650W PSU would be mor4e tan adequate for this setup. You could even get by with a 550W.
  2. Here is a website I use for helping people I know choose the right PSU for their system. It may be complicated but it gives a good conservative comprehensive estimate.

    http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp

    Minimum PSU Wattage: 418 Watts
    Recommended Wattage: 468 Watts

    Thats with everything on your post factored in with aging over a 2 or 3 year period. Sorry I'm a overkill pro. So a 550W would be just fine as stated earlier unless in the future you wanted to get another 680(In which case a 650W would be not enough).

    NOTE: ONLY FOR INFORMATION. There are more complicated things dealing with the rails and their output amperage, but that really only applies to overclocking, multi-video card setups, and having loads of peripheral devices(aka you should be fine). Also if you plan on building many systems in the future buying a PSU tester is not a bad idea because a bad PSU can make you cry when you start the system.
  3. A good 450W PSU would be enough for all but the most power-hungry non-SLI setups. 650W should be a non-issue unless the PSU is outrageously horribad.

    Get 600W to be safe, the prices are good.

    This one will do fine and leave u room to run it cool.

    Why to run it @ 90% if u don't have to.
