Based on your specs you should be maxing out at 719 w of power (with dual 6970s).

You sir, are a go.

*Edit* http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp you may get different results depending on how detailed you are, so check it out yourself.

thx for the quick reply, checking the calculator asap!!

edit: after a bit of tinkering with the calculator i got 711 watts, but i didnt see the 2600k cpu, so i used a i5-760 which has almost the same power consumption.

If those calculations are accurate, then that sure doesn't leave a lot of room for overclocking, does it? You obviously won't hit max power through normal usage. but in your shoes I would pony up for a 850W,
