I just built a gnarly computer... never had SLI and would like to know if my computer has enough power for overclocking... im having power issues when im overclocking idk if its just me or not enough power or shitty components...

My current set up is
i5 3750K oc@ 4.4 1.12v 72cel@load
16GB Corsair Vengance@1600- i want to achieve higher speeds...
ASrock extreme4 Mobo
250 SSD
(2) SLI EVGA 660 GTX
850 WATT 80bronze offbrand powersupply.... dont know y i have a 20 dollar power supply...

Im trying to achieve higher speeds and would like to overclock my ram and graphics cards but when i do i seem to get random system shut downs during bench-marking.. Im watching my temps and the temps seem to be stable but idk...

any help would be much appreciated... thx

850W is more than enough, almost overkill. I'd go with a Corsair TX 650W V2. It's pretty cheap too. :)
