Do I need to upgrade my Power Supply?

Im looking to get a 780 6gb soon but while im saving up(waiting for a sale) for this I want to make sure the rest of my system is prepared for it.

Right now I have an antec 650 watt (the green earth one)

Is this enough power?

I am running

I3770k , 16 gig ram and 128 ssd , 1.5 tb WD drive.

It's enough power. 650 is the recommended wattage by Nvidia for that video card. It should be fine unless you're running like a bunch of optical drives or something.

A good ~500-550W is fine for this... 650W is more than adequate.

The recommended is 600w, and the actual draw listed is 250w. Depending on how old the PSU, not to mention how hard and hot it's been run, is it should definitely meet nVidia's recommended much less be able to put out enough actual power to supply the card and the rest of the system.
