700w PSU upgrade to 950w worth it???

Hi, im looking to buy a 4870 x2 soon and a new core 7 cpu (or whatever they are callin it now) when it comes out, and i was wondering if my psu can handel it. right now i have a 700w OCZ powersupply. i have a q6600, my 8800gts, 1 HDD, 2 cd burners, 6 case fans, and i might get a sound card soon. Becuase my psu only has 2 6 pin pcie conectors i am forced to buy an adaptor, but if i should just upgrade soon il do that now. i was looking at this--->http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817159072 also i was wondering if anyone has any opinions on coolmax or ocz powersupplies. thanks alot

    DO NOT get that PSU. It is a no name- low quality brand

    Get a Corsair or PC Power & Cooling PSU (or the higher $160+ range ABS Tagan) or keep the OCZ. The OCZ should be enough to power a single 4870X2
