hmmmmm indeed. Not sure what to advise you. If people are pulling it off with an 850 watt PSU, and you can verify it, then I say go for it. If you can't verify it though, I'd rather be on the safe side.

The 850TX is more than enough for 2x 6970 in CF. Even on water you wouldn't be able to overclock them to the point that they'd be drawing enough power to strain the 850TX.

EDIT:You could run them off a TX750, or any other quality 750w PSU.
