Default What GPU's can I run on this PSU?

PSU is 650 watt with dual 12V rails. +12v1 is outputting 20 amps +12v2 is outputting 19 amps. So I certainly have alot of options I think. What can I expect to run? I have one PCI-e connector but have a few molex>PCI adapters around the house and plenty of unused 4 pins

Phenom I 9150e, 2GB memory, 320GB HDD, DVD Drive and card reader are using power at the moment. But they don't consume much

If it's a decent 650W PSU then you can pretty much stick any GPU in the PCI-E slot. The top end cards, with i7 CPU, 6GB RAM, multi-hard drives, etc might draw 400W max from the socket.

It's not a bad one, but it's not amazing. It offers good expandability for those who want more components. Paid 35 for it.
