Is this PSU a good choice?

I need a PSU for a Crossfire HD 7970 PC the rest of the specs are in my signature.
Here is the PSU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817148035&cm_re=750w_psu-_-17-148-035-_-Product
So is it reliable enough to run my PC? I think a 650w would run my PC fine but I want to leave some overclocking head room.
If you want to leave another recommendation I'd like to keep it in the same price range.
Thanks!

  1. Absolutely not.

    1. Apevia is a tier 5(not recommended, replace asap) unit on this list:

    2. CF 7970 is a relatively power hungry card and wants about a 800w psu.

    In this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iKk2_1u26tg at around the 11:30 mark he shows two GTX 580s which have close to the same amount of power draw, plus an overclocked CPU which I think has a high default wattage requirement.
