Hello,
I've been visiting this forum for YEARS and its never let me down. First off i want to thank you all for being such a great and reliable source for information. This community ROCKS!

I've recently upgraded my PC from:

AMD Phenom 9850 Blk edition 2.5GHz
Gigabyte mobo
4Gb of DDR2 RAM
1TB Seagate Green HDD
BFG 680 watt PSU
XFX 5770 1GB GPU

To:

AMD FX - 8150
Asus Crosshair Formula V mobo
8Gb of DDR3 1866 Ram

I still have the same HDD, GPU and PSU. Im looking into upgrading my GPU to an ASUS HD 7850 2GB 1st, then purchasing 2 solid state drives (one for OS and the other for gaming) My question is will my PSU be enough to support all of this? So far I have not had any issues but I'm not sure if the new video card would change that. Eventually i want to upgrade my PSU but I really dont want to until i absolutly have to. Just let me know your thoughts!

Thanks!

It should be fine (more than enough, actually). You could probably get away with CF on that PSU if it has 2 PCIe connectors (600W PSU recommended for CF 7850's).
