    CPU wattage help

    I currently own a XFX ProSeries Core Edition 550W 80Plus Bronze PSU and I am planning on getting a i7 Processor i7-3770 3.4GHz. The cpu is 77 watts, but will I need to get a 600+ watt psu?

    My specs:
    ASRock B75M-GL
    Intel i5-2400s 2.5GHz (Turbo 3.3)
    8GB CORSAIR MEMORY
    500 GB HDD 7200 RPM
    EVGA 650 1GB
    550 XFX PSU 80 PLUS
    NZXT Source 210 (Black)
