560 Ti 448 core PSU question

I currently am running an i7 2600, 8 GB RAM, HD 6770 system on an Antec 520 W PSU (this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...).

I want to get a 560 Ti 448 core. Will my system be able to handle this? If not, what do I need to upgrade to?

Thanks!

Are you sure? From what I've seen it will probably work but will be the bare minimum.

As mentioned, yes, but if you want to consider dual cards in the future, and since you are in the market to buy now, I would expand that just a little bit. Power supplies normally live beyond several builds and it would be worth the time now to consider your future usage/options. Personally I wouldnt build a gaming system with less than 650watts from a quality PSU manufacturer. That PSU will likely survive 2-3 rebuilds depending on your rate of upgrades/rebuilds. It is normally a few dollars now, to increase a substantial percentage. Normally paying itself in the long run because power supplies run more efficiently when they are less loaded, than when they are nearing 75% or their maximum capacity. Over the years, this would net any savings possibly lost on the initial purchase.

Yes I do understand that but unfortunately I am stuck with a Dell right now, so this is just an upgrade to that. The 6770 was OEM. As a side note, I assume the 560 Ti 488 core GPU will be compatible with my system?
