Ah I gotcha, its all good, can't believe I didn't notice that
And yea, what you said above plus I don't think that psu will even put out 630 watts in the first place let alone 670.

He won't need anything more than a quality 600W PSU, even if he plans on overclocking.

PhysX cards don't really consume lots of power, unless you are playing games which are PhysX intensive, then the card might be stressed. Otherwise, it'd be more or less idling all the time.

Even if your whole system is stressed, 600W would be more than enough.

^ This.
In most PhysX games, they dedicated PhysX card usually loads at 20~40% (hardly 40% in most cases, mostly 30% max)
Only in batman you will see 80% of load.
