    I'm looking to upgrade my PC and I'm wondering if my 700W power supply needs to be upgraded as well. I'm buying most of my components from Newegg and Tiger Direct but they're pretty scant on power usage info in their descriptions.

    The new upgrades will consist of:

    ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 AM3 AMD 890GX HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

    AMD HDT45TWFGRBOX Phenom II X6 1045T Processor - Six Core, 6MB L3 Cache, 3MB L2 Cache, 2.70GHz, Socket AM3, 95W.

    MSI R5770 Hawk Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card.

    G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-8GBRL [adding another 8GB in the near future]

    Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card.

    Any recommendations and/or opinions would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    The psu is a Thermaltake W0106RU 700W Complies with ATX 12V 2.2 & EPS 12V version SLI Certified 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply. It's a few years old but it's done the trick without any issues.
