Power supply question for AMD FX 8 core setup

Here's the system i plan on building. The graphics card and power supply i already have. Basically wondering if my power supply will supply the necessary power.

Processor AMD FX-8350 4.0ghz 8 core
(2) 2x4GB Gskill sniper series dual channel 1866mhz memory
Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 mobo
EVGA Nvidia GTX570 OC

The power supply is a Cooler Master GX-650W 80 Plus bronze rated.

Remember i have the power supply and video card already. Wondering if i need to add a power supply to my new egg order and i REALLY dont want to spend another 120$ on a 750w or higher.

I currently have this power supply running in a Dual core pentium E2500 with the above video card and 10gb of gskill ram. Essentially the only extra power load would be the added memory, which runs on similar voltages and the processor + mobo which dont vary too far in wattages.

thanks. My concern was just that i had a lower quality 550W and the unit would shut down when the card was put under load. When i upgraded to the cooler master. It seems like this card is a power hog.

The max TDP of your card is 219w. Even if the 650 is capable of spikes and not sustained 650w, sustained load will probably be around 125-150w.
