Default Buying new graphics card, upgrade PSU?

So I'm in the market for a new card, I currently have a 8800gt and was wondering what is a good upgrade from this. I've been looking at the GTX 560 ti question is do I have to upgrade my PSU also? I currently have a Corsair HX520W, which I'm thinking wouldn't be enough. So what would be a good PSU too look into?

That psu will be just fine for 1 560.. My 260 sli setup and oc'd q6600 only drew 520W at full load on everything.
