You might leave a few frames on the table but it'll give you at least 90% of what that RTX 3070 can offer. As for the PSU, 650W would be on the low end considering the card itself can demand 220W or more in some cases.

worst case scenario you can always force the card to run at a slightly lower voltage

Your power supply has enough power the only thing that would concern me is it is low quality. If you are going to buy a 3070 you should probably consider getting a better power supply, even if it is the same wattage.

so a Corsair CX series? is that low or not? or does it have to be a 80 Plus Platinum?

650W is plenty for that combo. the 3600 stock draws around 85W on the package. The 3070 is 220W stock. Unless you are running 10 fans with a pump and some christmas lights decoration, the PSU should be plenty. 

I'm running 3600 overclocked with an overclocked 2070 Super (power draw is around 250W) on a 650W PSU with no issues, not even a whoosh from the PSU.

Can people chill with the overexaggerated PSU recommendations...

If you can go higher than R5 3600, go 5600x!
