The 970 uses 25-65 watts less power than the 560, you will be fine. If your rig is happy running the 560 (170 - 210W depending on core count) it will be fine with the 970 (145W).

On a side note, its a really nice card. I'm happy with the MSI GTX 970 4G, runs whatever is thrown at it @1920x1080. Will see what happens when i move up to 1440 next year.

never have issue with 560 regarding power, so this means good to go for 970

No problem dude, I went from a 560Ti in my main rig to a 7970 then to a 970, prepare to have your mind blown with the performance leap!
