I'd say a healthy bit more than 'enough'. :)

I'd honestly say that could be ran on a 750W power supply, so you have more than enough.

A good 750-850 would be enough power for that rig - 1kW is more than enough.

Which begs the question - is there such a thing as too much juice in a PSU? Anyway, there are good calculators online that give an *indication* to how much you'll need out of your PSU. Try:

I checked New Eggs site and it said that the specs I have would use over 1000w.I thought that it would work well,but I just wanted to make sure.A 295 and a 260 in all is the equivalent to 3 260's.
