Yes but if you ever want to SLI i think you should get 750watt plus just to be on the safe side and allow room for future upgrade.

Who really wants SLI anymore. Single cards today are more than adaquate.

I wasn't trying to suggest SLI or say it was needed :) But if he did want SLI I was just suggesting a better PSU.

Should be fine, as the guys said above, if you want to SLI (which you really don't need to at the moment) then get 750 Watt + but 650 is perfectly suited for that build.

by the time you think you need more performance, a single card solution will be cheaper and faster than the 570's sli'd.

Not usually, as the 570 wouldnt have dropped in price.

Plus sli/xfire really dsoes nt scale well at all.
