I have some friends saying my psu is not enought what do you guys think.

Ocz zs 650w 80+ bronze
Powering
i5 2500k overclocked sometime
Asrock extreme3 gen3 mobo
Sapphire 7950 oc
3 200mm fans in cm storm enforcer case
And 212+ cooler

I thought 650 would be plenty , but as stated im in question now. Thanks!

IMO should be fine, but OCing might put a lot of strain on it.

What is the Amperage on the 12v rail?

650watts with a 12v rail with that amperage will work just fine with that setup.

If you're going to add a second GPU or heavily OC both the CPU and the GPU then I'd go to at least an 850, but for what you have now a 650 will be fine. IMO for the small cost difference to bump it up to a 850 it makes sense to future proof your self.

Sounds good for awhile all i will overclock is the gpu. But down the rd i will be doing more and swap out the psu i suppose . As long as it withstands hours of gaming im ok with that. Thanks for the response
