Will an EVGA 650 Watt Power Supply Run my New Computer?

I recently got all the parts to assemble my PC but I believe I skimped out on my PSU. I've got a 650W 80+ gold power supply and was wondering if it would be sufficient enough to power these specs:

Standard ATX desktop motherboard.

CPU: Intel 5 7600k

GPU: GTX 980 TI

RAM: 2 x 8GB DDR4

Storage1: SATA 7200 rpm

Storage 2: 500 GB SSD

Cooling:
2 x 120mm Fan
1 x CPU fan (cooler master 212x)

SIDENOTE: I did run the numbers on neweggs calculator and it came out to be roughly 660W of power needed. Thus, should I get a 750W PSU to give myself a bit of headroom?

    Hi - Yes, a good quality (emphasis on good) will run that system. Calc is in error (way overestimating) as
    your CPU & GPU account for most of the power & they consume ~400w.

    However, not all 650w PSU's are created equal and you should post the model you have, or
    post your budget here if you want to upgrade. A 750w isn't necessary, but also wouldn't do any
    harm as the components pull only what's needed. The 980ti is a power hungry card.

    The EVGA 650W GQ is more than enough for your rig.

    i5-7600K won't go past 150W in OC. GTX 980 Ti won't go past 300W. Rest of your system won't go past 100W.

    Hi - The CPU & GPU use most of the power the whole system uses, and they acct for ~400w (91w CPU,302wGPU),
    so the 660w from the calc is serious overstatement. So, a good quality 650w unit is a good choice for that rig. That EVGA is a good quality unit. Realhardtech recommends 600w for that system, as does the MSI Power requirements for
    graphics cards site.

    According to This calculator, you'd be only need about 500 Watts. If your power supply were poor quality then it wouldn't be a good situation, but your's is a good quality unit, so it shouldn't be a problem at all.


    I wouldn't buy the GQ , stick to a series that has a better OEM , get a G2 . G3.

    GQ is ok , but not great.
