You will need a Good PSU like 80+Bronze at 600 or 650W Modular. Go higher if you can afford it. Some graphic cards need a good psu as it draws power.

without a GFX card, that intel system maxes out barely over 100watts. The 650 is a waste of money, heat, power, and noise. Unless you're going SLI, you don't need it.

Yep that's what I am seeing also.  Wasn't really concerned as there were no reported problems of the PS not being up to spec and because I have a higher wattage ready if needed.  But the research did show that the actual limit is the actual ability of the case to cool.
