I am building a new rig with the 980x and a 465GTX video card. I want to know if a 850 PSU will be enough? I am not over clocking the CPU.

Depends on the 850W PSU, which one are you planning to get? A good 850W unit will be wayy more power than you need, and even a good 550W unit would be able to run it, but there are some crappy 850W units that are only as powerful as a good 650W unit.

Your power supply you have is more then plenty for your new build I would not change it you could even add another 465 and still have plenty to spare.

Your PSU is powerful enough for you config and even dual cards :) 

I also suggest you GTX460 over GTX465 if you haven't bought it yet...
