Just another PSU question. I'm currently in the process of building a new rig with the following specs:

Intel i7 2600k (OC to 4.4ghz)
Asus P8P67 Pro
XFX AMD 6950
16GB Corsair Vengeance PC12800 DDR3 (4x 4GB)
Plextor Blu-Ray combo drive
Corsair 800D case
4x 500GB 7200rpm SATA drives [ Windows(RAID 0) and Linux(RAID 0) ]
1x 1TB SATA drive (storage)


I know that the Corsair HX850 will be more than enough to power this system, but is it enough if i want to add a 2nd 6950 card to run crossfire plus a water cooling system with a triple rad? The liquid cooling system I'm planning to get is either the Ek H30 Supreme HF 360 or the Swiftech H20-220 Apex Ultima XT Liquid Cooling Kit. Thanks in advance for the replies. :)

A 750W unit would be able to handle that system with 2 6950s, the HX 850 wont have an issue with 2 6950s and a WC loop.
