CPU: Intel Core i5-2500k @ 4.0 ghz or higher
Motherboard: Asrock Pro3 z77 1155
RAM: Kingston Hyperx 4x4gb - 16GB/1600mhz/ @ 1.65v
GPU: msi nVidia gtx 560/660 ti 2GB overclocked or gtx 670
Heatsink: Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO
HDD: Western Digital Blue 7200 rpm drive (only 1 drive for now)
Case: Coolermaster Haf xm
Optical Drive: Asus DVD Burner

I will be overclocking my i5-2500k and graphics card, also might upgrade my motherboard to the Asrock Extreme 4.

My question is will an XFX 650W (single 12v rail @ 53 amps/636w) power supply be able to handle the components in my build?

Yes your fine you could actually run X2 560 TI in SLI or X2 7850CF with that PSU it's built by Seasonic and is a very decent reliable PSU if you plan to run a single 670 your still fine.

id say no go on the 1.65v ram.

650w is plenty, a 550w will also work fine
