GTX 780 + Corsair TX850W V2 Power Supply

Hey there, Tom's Hardware community.

So, I'm gonna build a new gaming/video editing rig very soon and I would like to know if the Corsair TX850W V2 is compatible with the GTX 780 (the GPU uses a 8 pin+6 pin connector if I'm not mistaken). Or would you guys recommend a different power supply? I'm getting a 850W version because I'll most likely go for SLI in the future.
Here's the full build:
-EVGA GTX 780;
-Intel Core i7 4770K CPU;
-be quiet! Dark Rock 2 CPU Cooler;
-Asus Sabertooth Z87 MB;
-Corsair Vengeance Pro 16GB RAM;
-Samsung 128GB 840 Pro Series SSD;
-Western Digital Caviar Black HDD;
-Corsair TX850W V2 Power Supply.

Thank you for your time!

    Here is Guru3D's power supply recommendation:

    GeForce GTX 780 - On your average system the card requires you to have a 550 Watt power supply unit.
    GeForce GTX 780 2-way SLI - On your average system the cards require you to have a 800 Watt power supply unit as minimum.
    GeForce GTX 780 3-way SLI - On your average system the cards require you to have a 1200 Watt power supply unit as minimum.

    If you are going to overclock your GPU or processor, then we do recommend you purchase something with some more stamina.
