hello :D
i'v had "Cooler Master RP-650-PCAP" and i know it is not as good as it sound, but now i want to buy a GTX 560 Ti . can my SPU handle it ? how about GTX 570 or GTX 480 ? or 660 ti ?

Ram: 4GB DDR2 800MHz oc
H.D.D.: WD 500GB Green

    Minimum system power requirement = 500w

    Your existing 650w PSU should be fine.

    thank you phil.
    i know what you mean phil but the system power requirement is only one side of the problem. the important thing is my PSU is 650w but i have only 2x 18Amp in my 12V rail. i guess that means 18A+18A = 36Amp = 432watts for CPU and Graphic Card.
    my current card uses at least 321w when it's fully loaded and 560 ti uses more than 345w and it could overload my PSU, i just want to make sure is it safe for me to upgrade my graphic into 560 ti or not.

    and again sorry for my bad english
