Is this power supply good enough for my system?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi, I know this must be boring to see another of these threads but I'm a little confused.
I have:
AMD FX-6300
Powercolor PCS HD 7870 Myst Edition (Tahiti LE)
Crucial Ballistix 1333MHz Ram (1x8Gb)
Gigabyte 970a-ds3 motherboard
Some cheap samsung disk drive
Seagate Barracuda 1Tb Hard Drive (7200rpm, 32mb cache)
Cheap Generic Case with 4 x Case Cooling Fans.

My current 500w power supply (not 80 plus) isn't powerful enough to power this under load, and I just bought a Thermaltake 650W 80+ bronze power supply (modular). Does this have enough power to cope with this system at full load (Crysis 2/Battlefield 3/Tomb Raider on Ultra Settings)
