If it were a Corsair, Seasonic,PCP&C, Antec Earthwatts, or XFX 850 watt-er, I'd say you were good to go. I know nothing about a CM Silent Pro M850.

A silent Pro M 850W can handle 2 GTX 570s easily, its got enough power behind it to support them, it got the award from HW secrets so its a solid unit
