Default Will a 650W Power supply support......

-AMD Athlon II x4 2.9GHz
- 4G (2x2) Patriot Sector 5 RAM
-2 7200 RPM HDD's
-EVGA GTX 460 not overclocked

I was wondering this because i'm looking to upgrade my graphics card from a 9500 GT, but i want to know if this supply can handle it.

I want Graphics performance upgrade....but not at an added cost of a $175 supply to go with a $145 card.

650W will be fine.

My tower and two monitors are plugged into a power meter and while stressing the cores with Prime95 the power consumption is 310W. Add 50W max for the GPU and that'll total 360W. That's with 5 case fans and 5 hard drives too.

I think it's more important to go with a quality PSU; Corsair/Seasonic/Enermax

I figured it could handle it since i know corsair is a reliable maker for pretty much anything.

I use a 650 watt PSU here at work and my system has an Intel i7 920, Asus P9T mobo, 6GB RAM, GeForce 9500 GT, 16x DVDRW, 40GB SSD and a 750GB HDD. It's also a Corsair. Definitely adequate.

Like the others have said, it's much more important to have a quality PSU, not just a higher number on the label. You should be fine with that PSU. I've got a 550 watt running the rig in my sig, so you shouldn't have a problem.
