Question Need help selecting PSU for build.

Hello, It's time I upgrade my computer and im trying to do it on a budget. I have win7 and the monitors already. Currently My build looks like this. - Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with Upgraded USB 3.0 - Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

I know that there is no graphics card in there but I was planning on just using my crappy 4800 series until I have enough to buy a nicer one. I'm trying to spend around 700 dollars and I just dont think I can squeeze one in there right now. So my question is what psu should I get. There is only going to be one gpu when the computer is completely finished. Would a 650watt corsair be fine? - CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply Thank you for your help.
