Talking about this? http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/2010/12/07/nvidia-geforce-gtx-570-1-3gb-review/9

That's measurements from the wall. Power supplies are rated at DC output, so that value will be lower due to efficiency. Also, you have take into account of the fact that it 330w also take into account the first gen i7-965, which has a higher power draw than the 3770k.

not to be rude but there is no maybe about it.

lets just take that 330 watts (though with PSU eff. its more like 297 [330*.9]) and add 200 watts for the 7870

530 watts which just puts you over 80% of your PSU's load (530/650= 81.5%)

no stress.
