Is 650 Watt Enermax good enough for 8 core AMD?

Currently running Enermax (ENG650AGT) 650W ATX PSU 87%/90%/87% MEPS compliant Efficiency, Full range, APFC, Native cables. PSU in my AMD 2 Core computer and looking to go to an 8 core with 16 Gb DDR3 RAM. will the PSU need upgrading or will it be OK?

Thanks in advance.

Do you have a graphics card ? otherwise anything over 400watts is just unused potential.

Will be adding one later. but for now the onboard one will do fine.

Likely this Graphic card. 2GB GDDR5 Sapphire AMD R9-270 Dual-X Graphics Card

Thanks for your comments black-heart.

much more than enough.

650w is plenty for any CPU plus any single GPU graphics card, as long as it's quality. Quality is reasonable in this case, so go nuts.

I have been running a similar system (power consumption wise) on a 400Watt supply.
Its been going for the last 5 years and hasn't popped yet!
