  1. Get this instead: http://ncix.ca/products/?sku=59615&promoid=1405
    Higher quality, enough watts for overclocking (just don't SLI).
  2. "*Note* I own everything except the GPU at the moment"
  3. That psu is a tier 4 unit on this list:http://www.eggxpert.com/forums/thread/323050.aspx
    It will likely work, but there are better choices.
    A quality 575 unit will do.
    I might pick this 650w unit:

    Since you already own the psu, and it has been presumably working, go ahead and try it.
    If it does not deliver sufficient power the most likely symptom will be artifacts from the gpu showing up on the monitor. Or, the need to lower the gpu clock.
    So long as the psu does not fail under load, no harm will be done.
