I got this build last yr... it's been good to me

evga gtx 680 ftw
asrock x9 mobo
core i7 i7-3770K
Seasonic 560w psu
16gb ram

I barely play videogames on it. only game ive been playing is need for speed and maybe street fighter x tekken.

I use it for mainly photo edit/processing.

If i upgrade to gtx 780...do i need a bigger psu?

This. and your rig is already WAY overkill for those two games. Your CPU is also powerful enough for multiprocessing and video/photo editing.

X79, that is way overkill for now. I don't think you should worry about upgrading. Maybe wait for Maxwell GPU.
