I would be look for at least a 900W-1KW PSU to ensure proper power...

The PSU is not quite enough according to http://educations.newegg.com/tool/psucalc/index.html and other PSU calculators. A 950W would be ideal, but you might be OK if you don't overclock the CPU too much and the GPUs aren't running at 100% load (they often do while running benchmarks, but not necessarily while gaming). A single GTX 570 Superclocked draws over 300 watts.
