OK so this is my PSU with my Setup:

I'm planning on upgrading my PC, i'm getting a new GPU and some Ram is my PSU enough or should I think about getting a new one?

This is what I'm getting.

GPU:

How many amps does your PSU have on the 12V rail? I've googled for specifications but couldn't find anything. Efficiency isn't all that great either @ 70%.

That PSU while not the greatest is still not that bad. It falls somewhere in the middle and should do a fine job for you planned upgrades.
