One of the hungriest components in a build is usually the graphic card(s). This is why these components will USUALLY have the minimum power necessary posted. If it is not there you can usually look at another 6770 with similar specs I find that it http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N8... says System Requirements: Minimum of a 450 Watt power supply.. This says to me that your 650W PSU will be more than enough for this build. If I still couldn't find the power I would google the card and the manufacturer's website to find the specs there. If I was still lost I would go here http://www.thermaltake.outervision.com/ . That site considers most every aspect of your computer including customizations like more fans, overclocking, capacitor aging( simulated age ), RAM sticks, DVD and or Blu-ray drives etc. to be able to come up with a fairly accurate suggestion for you.

i might wait a splash longer till the unsuitable sandy bridge contraptions have be fixed The sandy bridge chip contraptions on the MB are inflicting the SATA connectors to fail after specific mount of use, yet now they seem to resolved the project and important company's have merely began delivery lower back

Possibly just enough. Others may not be noticing you appear to be using two (2) video cards. Recommend 800w myself.

Yeah, that will work great. In fact, the EA-500D would work great, also. But there's nothing wrong with going another size up.

650watt ATX is enough
