ASRock Fatality Z77 Performance
GeForce GTX 570 2GB
Intel Core i7-2600 3.4ghz
G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 x 4GB

I'm just a little worried about the GPU. I'm upgrading from an HD 5770 and based on hwcompare, the GTX is going to require 103% more power. Is 650 watt still enough?

For a system using a single GeForce GTX 570 graphics card NVIDIA specifies a minimum of a 550 Watt or greater power supply that has a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 38 Amps or greater and that has at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

Total Power Supply Wattage is NOT a crucial factor in power supply selection! Total Continuous Amperage Available on the +12V Rail(s) is the most important.
