Default GTX 570 Underpowered?

Hello, I am intending on buying a GTX 570 for my desktop, but I am unable to tell if it will be underpowered. Some friends of mine say that I will be fine, while others insist that I will be slightly underpowered. What do you think?

M/B: Asus P8z 68-VLE
Processor: Intel i7 2600
PSU: Antec 650w green
HDD: Stagte Barracuda 1TB
Ram: 4.00 GB

Link to GTX 570: - EVGA 012-P3-1570-AR GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Long as you don't overclock you'll be fine.
