No he won't need a new power supply
I do run the GTX 970 over clocked to 1500 MHz and i7 4770 locked @ 3.9 GHz 16 GB of ddr3 + 2 tb of HDD and 240 GB ssd.

Without any problems now just waiting for my CLU paste to arrive and will delid my CPU to make it cooler now it max @ 82c small fft on prime so getting it to low 70s will be awesome.
