PSU for GTX 760 SLI + AMD FX- 8350

Hi there, I am looking to build a new rig, and am wondering about the power consumption.

Motherboard:Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3
CPU: AMD FX-8350
Graphics: 2-way SLI GTX 760's (2gb, gigabyte with windforce fans)
RAM: 8gb corsair vengeance pro
Cooling: Using the Corsair carbide 500R case with 2 extra 120mm fans installed on the top. Looking at a predone corsair water cooling kit for the cpu.

I currently have a corsair GS700 in my old rig and was wondering if this would be enough to support this, as i feel it may not. If not would a GS800 be viable or would i need to look at an even greater PSU? Also currently lets say no overclocking, though may consider it in the future.

Thanks in advance!!

    Hi a 700w PSU should suffice and because it is from a manufacturer such as Corsair, you know that it is a good quality product.

    Check out this PSU calculator, it determines how much watts your new rig will consume.
