Yeah its more than enough. The 68xx series draws less than the 58xx cards and you can run 2 5870s on a 750TX with no problem, an 850HX will handle them with a ton of overhead left for overclocking.

A 650W would do but get a 750W. XFX 750 are made by Seasonic and also modular like the HX.

The 750HX would be plenty too, so would the XFX 750. The XFX unit is newer, it came out earlier this year and has a 5 year warranty vs the 7 year on the 750HX, but both are excellent units, when comparing units that close in performance and both well above average it comes down to price for me.
