I recently bought a 6870 for my old system but now I'm worried my power supply wont be able to handle the system.

I have a thermaltake purepower 560w psu and my current specs are:

Foxconn 775 g45m motherboard,
intel q6600 core 2 quad cpu overclocked a bit to 2.7ghz,
artctic freezer 7 pro cpu air cooler,
4gb ddr2 ram (2 sticks of 2gb),
-future- powercolour hd 6870 gpu,
ocz agility 3 120gb ssd,
and finally some old 290gb hdd

I know it's an old system but could anyone tell me if my psu will be enough?
If it isnt can anyone recommend a better power supply but for kinda cheap; i dont wanna go blowing £50 on a psu for a system I wont be using in the next few months

Thanks in advance.
