    650w is more than enough for that build and a gtx 660.
    Even 500w will do, however you haven't mentioned what psu brand it is you are going to get. Go for branded and well known ones such as: Corsair, XFX, Seasonic, antec, OCZ etc.

    The GTX 660 requires a 450W PSU or better. To stay on the safe side, go with 500W or greater. If you want to SLI in the future, get a 650W-750W PSU. Stick with brands like Corsair, XFX, Seasonic, and sometimes Rosewill. Avoid CoolerMaster and OCZ.

    Hello,
    650w psu is good enough and try to expant your HDD to 1TB if possible. Because it will increase your performance...
