Will I need more power?

Hi, I was just wondering if I was going to get a graphics card that is a gtx 770, would I need more power if I would be getting a 650 watt power supply by corsair? Or would it have to be upgraded to a 750 watt powersupply so it can power the graphics card and the whole system... thanks

A 650 watt will be fine. The max power draw of your build is about 420 watts

a good 500 watt will work fine for that build.

well I was just asking because I was looking at the specs of the card and it said the recommended power is 600 watts..

Manufacturer's recommendations are normally pretty bad since they leave a ton of headroom. Use a nice power supply calculator

I would recommend a 650W, it give you room to overclock in the future and give you headroom after that. I have a similar build and its runs 500W max; I wouldn't feel safe running a 500W power supply. Go with the Seasonic 650W that you currently have on the parts list.
