Default new PSU for 8800GTS?

Hey I'm thinking about upgrading my gpu from the 7600GT in my sig to the 320mb 8800GTS. (well actually just a better card, but it seems like that might be my best bet for a while.)

my question is...could my 550W PSU (in sig) handle the card? I'm also probably going to be getting a 2nd HD if that would make THAT big of a difference. Thanks in advance.

Antec NeoPower 650W
Gigabyte EP45-DS3R
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 (w/ Arctic Freezer 7)
4GB DDR2-1000 G.Skill
Sapphire x1950 Pro 512mb (w/ V700)
250GB, 500GB and 1.5TB Seagate Barracudas (2.25TB total)
Fatal1ty XtremeGamer sound card *** generic TV tuner
Xclio 3060 case *** HannsG 22" monitor

It should do it just fine.


My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.
