Like the title asks.

Here is what I have inside my PC

AMD FX-8150
XFX HD Radeon 6870
GIGABYTE GA-970A-UD3 Motherboard
2 Ram sticks (8GB in total)
3 Fans, 2 are LED
DVD-R
1TB HDD

That's about it really. Please let me know what is the minimum wattage I should have.

Thank you for the response. The reason I asked is, I got a Ultra 650w power supply and I didn't know if it was enough because the power supply that came with my pc was 700w but it was a random brand called like arctic and it had really really bad reviews.
